Your data is valuable. It will cost you time and effort re-create it, and that costs money or at least personal grief and tears; sometimes it can't even be re-created, e.g., if it is the results of some experiments. Since it is an investment, you should protect it and take steps to avoid losing it.
With today's Malware and Randsomware attacks simply by having a backup copy, you can then erase the drive, reinstall the operating system, restore the backup copy, and then start fresh. So remember: no backup, no protection from ransomware.
We highly recommend you have an isolated back up that is not connected to your network , mapped and shared drives.
WE CAN OFFER YOU SAFE AND RELIABLE BACK-UP SOLUTIONS
Apart from our Call-outs and in-house work we can also offer you support telephonically, or via remote access. DurbanGeek uses TeamViewer for remote assistance.
For us to assist you you would need TeamViewer installed on your desktop/ laptop/ Mac, and you would also need a fair internet connection. Once you have downloaded TeamViewer you would have to install it and then run the program. Click on your TeamViewer shortcut on your desktop, you will get a window that opens up and it looks like image illistrated on the below.
The ID, 'Your ID' is unique to your PC and will never change. The password will change after everytime you shut down and restart TeamViewer, you can also refresh the password at anytime my clicking on the refresh button to the right of the password. Unattended access can also be achieved by setting a fixed password on teamviewer, but i will go into that later. Now all that is needed is for you as the 'Host' to invite us as the 'Guest' to access your computer by giving us 'Your ID' and 'Password' DurbanGeek has set up teamviewer such that you can see exactly what is being done to your computer and you are able to disconnect at anytime. Security Note: Never give your Teamviewer information out to anyone you do not trust. Close Teamviewer or refresh the password after anyone has worked on your computer so they cannot re-access it at a later time.
