My hard drive is making unusual noises – what can I do?
Don’t panic. If you don’t have a good backup in place – the first thing you want to do is get an external drive or Flash drive and copy the most critical files of the hard drive. If you are having problems copying files, and getting error messages – call us at once. There are indications of a drive failing, and we will need to get it in the lab ASAP for data recovery. Simply give us a call and we can guide through the process. It is also a good idea to turn off that computer to limit the amount of time that the bad drive is spinning.
