Back up a second – data recovery AND an SSD?

You never know when you’ll need data recovery services. Why not be proactive about it and upgrade to a faster SSD when your old conventional HDD becomes corrupted. At Performance Computer Group, we want you to have the latest technology inside your computer to insure that you have the best computing experience possible. There are a few things that you should know about SSD (Solid State Drive) technology and why you should switch today.

Solid State Drives are super fast!

Solid State Drives are built with no moving parts. They are essentially a bunch of computer chips that store data. Conventional hard drives consist of magnetic platters that spin and disk access times have to include the time to spin up to full speed. What this means is that the chance for impact damage or damage cause by vibration is almost eliminated entirely. In this tech talk from the New York Times, Intel claims their SSD is 8 times faster than an HDD.

The need for Data Recovery services reduced? Not really, but wait.

There are people reviewing and testing SSD technology as it continues to develop. At one time, there was a popular myth going around that SSD lifespans were extremely short, but it remains just that, a myth. You can read this 2014 article from PC World that squashed that myth years ago. Although the disk failure rate is reduced with SSDs, the drives are more likely to lose data. As a result of using an SSD over a long period of time, you will also see that your data is just as safe. However, the need to back up your data regularly is still a suggested best practice.
