Business and residential work: Some work we’ve done recently.

Just to let everyone know about some of the jobs we’ve been doing lately…

Home: Rescued a crashed hard drive to bring the system to full working order again. This saved lots of money by avoiding the cost of a replacement hard drive and reinstalling the OS, not to mention the unbacked-up photos!

Business: Rebuilt a server for a local practise. Under pressure of time the job was completed with minimal downtown and inconvenience for the customers and business.

Home: Helped a customer worried about being hacked…we discussed how to take extra steps online to protect yourself. The computer was cleaned 100% so any previous viruses/trojans in the system or malicious files were removed for sure.

Business: A MacBook Pro wouldn’t load, with a white screen. The machine had loads of data on it that couldn’t be lost (websites, documents, movies). We got it all running again with all files restored (bar one corrupt one!).
