It’s time to check your equipment to make sure your computer is protected from these summer storms and power outages.
Check to see that you have battery backups and surge protectors installed to protect your equipment. Lightning strikes can cause damage to your computer, so be sure to have protection in place. In Florida, battery backups and surge protectors only last about three years – less if you have frequent outages and surges. If yours are older, they probably need to be replaced. Make sure your router and modem are plugged into these to help protect your equipment.
Have you backed up your files lately? Now is the perfect time to grab an external hard drive or a flash drive and save your important files, priceless photos and videos, and your music collection before it’s too late! Hard drive damage usually happens unexpectedly and at the worst times – Don’t procrastinate!
If you need recommendations on what equipment to buy or need help with the installation, please give us a call – we are always here to help you. Enjoy your summer!
