When a computer refuses to boot, is slow to startup, or is just generally sluggish – it may be time to upgrade that old hard drive. We seek out and replace traditional, outdated, mechanical hard disk drives (HDD) with faster, more secure, solid state drives (SSD).

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

Hard drives store files using magnetic platters which spin up to 10,000 RPM, and have a 20x higher failure rate than solid state.[1]

Unfortunately, even in brand new, high-end systems, mechanical hard drives are often still used, creating a virtual bottleneck. 

Benefits to an SSD include:

• Improved Startup Time
• Increased Data Security 
• Unnecessary To Defragment
• Quieter, Lighter
• Faster Search & App Response Time 

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

The Old Hard Drive

Hard drives that pass their respective S.M.A.R.T. tests can be converted into external devices (as pictured) – or, if possible, remain inside the computer via an expansion bay.

If a drive is deemed faulty, it should be erased – and physically destroyed – once all important data is extracted.
