Our Hard Drive Cloning Service

Real World Inspection

The CPU Case or Laptop is Opened to reveal Hard Drive in its proper mounted stasis
observing the conditions or environment are reasonable and not problematic due to and unusual amount of dust, dirt, pet fur or even moisture. The drive is listened to in order to hear any early warning signs of a worn and failing hard drive. If the previously described checks out A- OK then we move on to the Virtual Diagnostics.

Virtual Diagnostics and Pre-Clone Procedures

The Boot Drive is Identified and Overall Drive Size versus Free Unused Space is determined.
All Malware/Anti-Virus has been confirmed as actively defending with up to date definitions.
The Drive is then cleaned up, Error Checked (with bad /lost sectors repaired) and De Fragmented.
The CPU is disconnected from any networks and the clone software is installed.
A new Hard Drive upgrade is unpacked/installed and recognized by the Operating System.

Clone!

Cloning Software is engaged and a New Upgraded Bootable Hard Drive is ready to replace the current hardware/OS! The old Drive is marked with a date and given to the client as the emergency archive.

I do daily backups of my data, isn't that enough?

Daily backups only back up your data, NOT operating systems, programs, system configurations, settings etc.. This is why we can not emphasize enough the importance of cloning your hard drive. Our Drive-Cloning Service will replicate all of your programs, software and configurations. Your data will be cloned as of the date that this service is performed. As long as the cloned drive is put in a SIMILAR machine with SIMILAR hardware, a cloned drive will function just as it was prior to your original drive failure. This service is not intended to replace your normal backup procedure which is extremely important!


Helpful tip...

Keep a can of compressed air handy to blow out accumulated dust in the CPU in a well ventilated outdoors area. We recommend repeating about every 3 months.
