SSD Data Recovery
by Schill

This article talks about different kinds of keywords used by computer repair world. These keywords are related to different type of devices including computers and laptops.

Computer people know that there are so many computer terms used these days. Notebook service or laptop fix is one of the hot keywords. Notebooks, also known as laptops are mini computers. People, who fix computers, often use the term notebook or laptop repair, some call it notebook repair; others say laptop fix or troubleshooting. Laptops are all-in-one full fledge computers that does the same job as a desktop computer would do. Notebooks have great convenience of portability which means they can be used on the road or inside office or home.

Another famous keyword is the popular computer repair term also known as PC repair, PC services or Apple computer repair and MacBook repair. So in simple words, fixing a desktop tower or an all-in-one machine is called computer repair or PC repair. Data is what these laptops and desktop computers store on their hard drives. So if a computer breaks, chances are, the data might be damaged or destroyed. A lot of times, data can still be intact if there is a hardware problem other than hard drive failure. Hard drive is the main area where all the data is stored. If hard drive or computer fails to start, there is a risk of losing data. A famous term data recovery is used when the computer fails to start or the hard drive fails to respond. After the popularity of Apple computers, Mac repair became the most commonly used term in computer support world. As it is clear from the above statement, Mac computers are manufactured by a company called Apple. Mac computers and laptops are strong machines but in case of any problem, the word Mac repair is used.

The next component in the world of computers is the machine that gives us output on paper. It is known as Printer. Businesses use printers to print reports for day to day activities. So Printer repair is another keyword widely used by people in the computer repair industry. When a computer, laptop or a Mac hard drive fails, it creates another keyword known as hard drive repair. Every computer, laptop or Mac has a hard drive. Computer and laptops use different kinds of hard drives like SATA, IDE, SSD, Flash etc. This is the main part where everything we see on the screen is stored. Other media that store data are USB flash drives and SD cards. In old times, floppy drive, CD or DVD compact disks were used for information storage. USB flash and SD cards are faster and therefore the best invention. Floppy drives and CD drives were slow. Storage capacity was another problem with old media but the new storage devices have no such problem. USB sticks come in small dimensions but with different capacities. They are becoming small and small day by day.
Laptops and computer desktops use display or monitor to show information. The modern name of such devices, are LCD screens. Old screens were heavy and would not provide good graphics quality but new technology has better resolution and the sizes of these monitors are growing for example, Apple retina screens have the highest graphics quality in the market right now.

In the above paragraphs, I tried to throw light on different words used in computers especially when it comes to repairs. I covered old and new terms used for computers, laptops, Apple computers and MacBooks. This article was written with the intention of benefiting those who have less knowledge when it comes to computers and new technology. Most terms like laptop repair, Mac repair, PC, laptop and data recovery were covered in this article.

Future of computer repair

SSD Data Recovery
by Schill

In this article, I will explore some future repair possibilities of computers, laptops, PC and other electronic processing devices like hard drives, Raids etc.

Computer repair is a process of bring back a dead computer and laptop to life. Computer repair includes software repair, hardware repair and data recovery. As we know, computers and laptops consist of many parts. These parts include hard drive, RAM, logic board, power supply, speaker, network card, modem and DVD drive. All these parts are replaceable. These parts are important factors in computer repair. Computer and laptop repair is very common these days. There are millions and millions of computers in consumer market at the moment. There is always some kind of use for computers and laptops. Some people use them for storing data, other use them for browsing. Student use them for studies, scientists use them for research and processing. They have use in all areas like media, automobile, offices and all kinds of businesses. More use means more computers with problems. It’s simple if there are computers everywhere, they will need repair when there is a problem.

Computers and laptops are becoming cheaper and cheaper day by day. The question is what will be the future of laptop and computer repair? As the world is moving from PCs to laptops and now to smart phones, the danger is growing. This danger has two aspects. Computers used to be expensive before because, of different accessories. A desktop computer comes with a keyboard, mouse, monitor and CPU. These accessories cost more which keeps their price at a fair level. So with the groving demand of laptops and smart phones, the demand for PC is decreasing. This moves repair service from PCs to laptops and smart phones. There is another danger that may be a disaster for repair business in the world of computers. Day by day manufacturers are using less and less parts inside computers and laptop systems. New Apple MacBooks and iMacs have built-in RAM and SSD drives with less moving parts (which means less hard drive failure). Also most of the screens are disposable. This situation is a big threat to PC repair services. Everything happens for a reason. This means there will be more and more jobs for component level repair for motherboards or logic boards.

As things are changing, other services will also be affected. These include manufacturing of computer parts and hard drive repair. Hard drive repair is the big one. As more and more people use smart phones and SSD drives, the business of data recovery will be badly affected.

The next problem is the low price of laptops and phones. Laptops and phones can be replaced with a new device for a fairly reasonable price. Does this means the repair will die? I don’t think so. Here is how. Adults like to use big screens, which means PCs and laptops usage will be alive forever. There is a craze for small screen devices. When this boom settles after a while and the prices of big screens goes down, users will come back to big screens. This will be fully true for laptop usage if not that good for PC usage. As we know a lot of businesses depend on PCs and laptops, chances are they will take steps to promote big screen computer to attract users once again. As discussed above, using more and more smart phones and SSD hard drives, will have bad impact on the business of data recovery. The data recovery business will take a turn in new direction. Smart phones like iPhone, blackberry and iPads data recovery will grove. As SSD drives can also fail, the data recovery of these drives will take a different direction which means these drives will need data recovery using newer techniques and tools which will keep this business alive.

In this article, I talked about the future of computer and laptop repair. I also threw light on future trends, how things will change in different direction.

Types of Computer and Laptop Hard Drives

In this article I will talk about different types of hard disks including flash, SSD, external and internal hard disks. I will cover all aspects of storage media.

The first type is USB flash drive. USB flash devices are similar to regular hard drive except they are small. Some are micro shape while others are regular pin size. USB storage media is very popular at the moment. The reason is the size and portability. Files can easily be transferred from one computer to another. USB flash devices come in only one file format which makes them compatible with PC and Mac computers. These come with a FAT file system. Thumb media comes in different capacities (32 MB to 64GB). USB media are safe devices unlike traditional hard storage whose failure rate is higher. The reason is, these flash devices do not use heads and platters. Thumb flash uses flash memory for data storage.

The next type of storage media is the famous hard drive. Hard drive comes in two basic types, internal and external. Internal hard disks are used inside computers and laptops in order to run the operating systems. External hard disks are externally used with computer systems to store data. External disks connect to computers via a USB cable. External hard disks have two types, desktop and portable. Desktop hard disks are regular while portables are known as 2.5 inch hard (made for portability). Hard disk uses different parts like PCB, heads, platters and spindle motor for operations. These have a long history of failure especially when they are dropped. Although any kind of hard can fail but these traditional disks have fragile heads and that is why if they fail more than flash drives. That is, a little movement can cause serious damage. As a whole these have long life cycle.

In internal there is a new family of media called SSD (solid state Drive). SSD uses memory chip for data storage just like USB flash. These are faster and more reliable but in fact these are slightly less reliable as other at least at the current stage of the technology. These can fail electronically or logically. The life cycle is also short because of the memory chip design. These SSDs come in different capacities. Because SSD are at their early stage, they are very expensive at the moment. The technology needs a lot of improvement. SSD drive memory can disappear with the passage of time. Data recovery from these hard disks is very expensive. These are part of both PCs and Macintosh computers.

The next kind is Raid technology. It’s not really a type of the hard drive. The purpose is to increase performance and storage. Raid arrays consist of more than one (to improve processing speed and to avoid data loss risks) disks. The other form is network disks. These are also called NAS (network access storage). NAS store data over network. Both NAS and Raid use windows and Linux operating systems. Data Recovery process involves changing parts in case of physical damage. The process is usually expensive.

The next type of data storage devices are known as SD cards. An SD card is a small flash chip that is used to store data in portable devices like phones, camcorders, digital cameras. One type is Micro SD card. These cards also use flash memory for data storage. Data recovery process involves both logical and physical recoveries. They come in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64GB sizes. Micro SD cards have one problem though. These cards easily heats up during the usage and can fail. If micro SD cards fail physically, data recovery is almost impossible.

In this article I have explained about different types of data storage devices like hard, USB and SSD media.

What is the best way to backup a computer?

In this article, I will talk about some of the best ways to do data backup. I will also explain the importance of data backup.

Backing up data is compulsory for all computer users when they have important information. When I say data, it could be anything from notes to a high level corporate records and databases. Every single computer, tablet including iPads, iPhones etc. have different kinds of inputs like pictures, documents, music etc. Data for a writer means, hours of writings, and data for a household is all important photos, pictures and videos. A small business maintains its financial info including customers’ database, employees’ records, inventory and any other office documents. Medium and large corporations have huge amount of crucial financial and company information. Whether it’s small business, a household or a large company, nobody can afford to lose their important information.

How data is usually kept? There are two traditional ways people keep records. One is a hard copy and the other one is a soft copy. A hard copy can last up to a certain time. A soft copy can stay for a long time depending on method of storage. In old times soft data or electronic data was kept in the form of punched cards, while the modern methods include data storage on magnetic media using CDs, hard drives or USB media.

CDs storage is not long lasting, usually after 8-10 years, information starts to disappear. Traditional hard drives can keep data for a long time. USB and SSD drives keep data in nand memory chips. Storing data online is not a very attractive way but the attraction is unfortunately not that good. The reason is, it costs money to store documents, pictures and photos using online services. Users have to pay certain amounts every month. This means if a user pays $ 10 a month for online data storage, it will be $ 120 a year and if he or she keeps the data for 5 years, its $ 600. I am not talking about 10 to 15 years which will be $ 1200 to $ 1800. Here is a another bad thing about online backup and that is, the user agreement that says it clearly that in case of accident, the storage service will not be responsible for data loss. One more problem is if the Internet is not available, there is no way to access data for emergency purpose. Another important negative aspect is to keep private and confidential data on someone else computer online which is definitely not a smart move. What if a service stops its operation all of a sudden due to any reason? Yes, the user will lose his or her data because there will be no chance of data recovery.

So what is safe and better way to store information? Definitely, the best strategy will be storing data on an external hard drive or USB in addition to one copy on a computer, laptop, iPad or phone. This means every user whether he or she uses a computer (Microsoft windows or Apple), tablet, laptop or any other device, must have an external hard drive. It’s cheaper, reliable and more convenient way. How it is cheaper and convenient? Hard drives prices have dropped tremendously over the years. All Apple computers and Microsoft Windows computers have built-in data backup utility. A user can easily run the wizard to setup an external hard drive to backup the computer whether it’s a Mac computer or PC laptop. The first time, it takes a few hours to backup the entire data. Next time only updated files are backed up and user cannot even feel it. This way all the documents, photos and music are saved to an external hard disk without user intervention. This is no doubt the best way of computer backup.

In this article, I have explained different ways of backup. I have also discussed the most recommended method to backup a computer.
