Solid State Drive (SSD) Upgrade 

Hard drives fail more than any other component. 

If a computer refuses to boot, is slow to startup, or is just generally sluggish – it may be a sign of a failing hard drive. We diagnose traditional, outdated, mechanical hard drives and unleash the full potential of our customers systems by upgrading to a faster, more secure, solid state drive.

Data recovery is always our first priority when critical files are at risk.

Hard drives store files using magnetic platters which spin over five thousand times every minute. Unfortunately, even in brand new, high-end systems, mechanical hard drives are often still installed, creating a virtual bottleneck. 

Once upgraded to a solid state drive, expect a faster, quieter, more responsive computer.

An SSD is only necessary as the primary boot drive.

That Old Hard Drive

Additional storage can be obtained from a hard disk that passes S.M.A.R.T. tests. Desktop computers include multiple drive bays, so any functioning hard drives can become secondary disks.

Generally, converting an old hard drive into a portable, USB drive for additional storage is the best solution, as seen to the right.
