As machines age, their hardware will typically need to be replaced. The most common hardware replacement is the hard drive. Also known as the storage hardware, the hard drive is responsible for storing all of your valuable data, music, photos, documents, games, programs and even the operating system. As your machine is used day in and day out, the hard drive begins to slowly degrade and will experience slowness over time. Our professionals at MV Computers can help you through the transition from an old hard drive to a new hard drive so that you can continue to use your machine and experience a seamless transition.
Hard Drive Replacement in Mission Viejo
Hard Drive Repair
In addition to general wear-tear, hard drives can experience fragmentation (if on a traditional, spinning hard-drive), and can also be exposed to corrupted sectors — primarily due to failure of updates, viruses, or misconfigured software.
In most cases, our team can pull from your current backup to restore your data while we install the new hard-drive; however, if you do not have a current or up-to-date backup, we (in most cases), can recover the data from the old drive (generally, even if the drive is failing), and help restore the data to the new machine.
Failing Hard Drives
In some instances, a traditional drive swap may not be recommended (or not suitable for some of our clients) in which case we may recommend upgrading the hard drive to a solid-state drive. In this case, we as computer consultants have a few options and processes that we can recommend. First, we can attempt to get the machine “prepped” to perform a clone so that your entire operating system, programs, files, and even licenses will be transitioned to the new machine and you will not miss a beat. In some cases, this may not be the most appropriate option, specifically when sector damage or file corruption is detected on the hard drive. In this case, we will make the recommendation on a clean, fresh install of the operating system to provide you a “brand new machine” experience where the operating system is put onto the machine providing an out of box experience.
