Washington DC Data Recovery – Windows Computer Data Recovery, Washington DC

Just this weekend I was working on something for school and I wasn’t paying attention to how often I was saving my work.  Unfortunately at some point I lost power and then my computer crashed.  When I rebooted I realized that I had lost the work that I had done thus far.  Thankfully for me, I have found an incredible software by Piriform called “Recuva“.  “Recuva” is a free software download that will help you recover files that have been deleted from your Windows computer (PC), recycle bin, memory card, and MP3 player.  This is something that can be extremely helpful if you, like I have in the past, deleted an important file by accident or suffered data loss when my computer has crashed.

Some of the features that “Recuva” offers are recovering lost files on your computer, such as photos, documents, music files and even emails.  One thing I love about this is that you can even recover files directly from your iPod’s drive, even if you can access the files directly.  You don’t have to worry about losing the music from your iTunes library or iPod any more.  Another nice feature is that if you have damaged or formatted your hard drive and you forgot to back it up, “Recuva” can help you get those files back.  Where Windows can’t find files on a formatted or damaged drive, “Recuva” can!  They may not all be recoverable but it’s better than nothing.

Where “Recuva” helped me specifically is with it’s ability to restore unsaved Word documents.  This software can rebuild documents from their temporary files and believe me, if you have ever experienced this, it’s worth it!

One thing that you have to think about with the ability to recover data and files is that if you can do it, so can a hacker.  One other feature that “Recuva” offers is the ability to safely and securely delete files that you want to get rid of forever.  The software has the ability to overwrite the portion of the hard drive where the ghost file of the original file exists so that it can never be recovered.

Piriform offers great products and free downloads for cleaning up our computers and for more information or to download their products please visit their website.

Here at Geek ABC we love the Piriform products, especially Ccleaner.  Geek ABC is a locally owned and operated computer and network service and repair company in the local Washington DC Metro Area.  If you have any questions please feel free to visit our website at www.geekabc.com, or give us a call at 1.877.GEEKABC (1.877.433.5222) to schedule an appointment.  We provide same day, mobile, in-home network support and repair services for residential and business customers.

To Repair or Replace-

Ask yourself these three questions:

How old is my computer?

What do I use it for?

What is it worth?

Computers are ones of the most frequently used devices in our homes and offices today.  There isn’t a day that goes by where most of us don’t use one.  So what happens when your computer breaks down or crashes?  The first thing that crosses our minds is how much is this going to cost me to fix…and if I can’t fix it how much is a new one going to cost?  Or, is it going to be more expensive to fix than to just simply replace it?  Due to all of the competition amongst brands these days, computers are fairly inexpensive, but then we have to think about all of the data that is on our computers.  Transferring data from one computer to another is not only timely but can be costly as well.

So the first thing we need to know before we start to make this decision, what’s wrong with my computer?  Why did it break down or crash?  As stated in my previous blog, the most common reasons for a computer crash are, “Bad Drivers”, “Bad Power Supply”, “Corrupt Files (viruses)” and “Overheating”.

Every case of “should I replace it or repair it?” is very different and there really isn’t a straight-forward, simple answer.  If the cost of repair is going to be more than what a new one would cost then it’s better to replace it, but always keep in the back of  your mind, what I said earlier, the data that we keep in our computers can sometimes be irreplaceable.  The best thing that you can do is always keep a backup of your files.  Should you need to transfer your data from an old computer to a new one, Geek ABC will be there to help.  And, here at Geek ABC it’s our job to help you make the best informed decision of whether to repair or replace your computer.  Our technicians will always be upfront and honest with you about the cost of repair and if we don’t think that it’s worth the time and money to repair we will do our best to help you decide what new machine will work best for your specific needs in the future.

Geek ABC is here to come to you, we service the entire Washington DC Metro Area in cities such as: Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, McLean, Great Falls, Oakton, Springfield, Vienna, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Germantown, Rockville, Olney, Potomac, Chevy Chase and Washington DC.
