Restart Periodically

Many people enjoy being able to quickly access their computer anytime and we completely understand, however, leaving your computer running 24/7/365 can actually put more wear-and-tear on the hardware and lessen the lifespan of your device. We recommend restarting at least once a week and if you can, try to give your computer some breaks from time to time, leaving it off for a few hours/overnight.

Back It Up

We frequently see customers who have lost important files/data on their computers, in most cases we can recover it for them, however, this is not always the case. Try backing up your computer or most important files at the very least. You can use an external hard drive or a cloud service such as Google Drive, DropBox, etc.

Limit Running Programs

When it comes to multitasking as a human it can become quite difficult, and a computer is no different. The more running programs the slower your device tends to run. If you are no longer using a program, close it. This allows your computer to allocate those resources to the programs that need it.

Clean Things Up

Think routine cleaning is only for your home? Think again! You should be cleaning your computer regularly as well, any files or programs you no longer use can be thrown away in the trash. This clears up space for things you may need in the future and can help with computer performance.
