Looking To Replace Your Hard Drive?

When the time comes to replace your hard drive, don't make that decision without considering a few key points. It would be a waste of money to pick a hard drive that isn't suited to your needs. Here are 6 things to consider before you buy a hard drive:

  1. Drive Type - Hard Disk Drive or Solid State Drive: a HDD basically has moving parts and stores information on a magnetic surface, and an SSD stores information in chips, with no moving parts at all. SSD's are much faster than HDD's.
  2. Storage: the amount of storage needed varies according to what type of information you need to store. Music, video and picture files take up the most storage, so if you're into any of these niches, you'll want to have as much storage as possible.
  3. Transfer Speed: how fast do you need to transfer information? A good rule of thumb is that the information will transfer as fast as your slowest bus.
  4. Cache Space: the cache saves information from web pages to load information faster, so your desired speed for browsing will determine this.
  5. Access Times: the faster the access time, the less work the memory has to do in allowing programs to access information.
  6. Price: all the aforementioned factors will determine the price of the hard drive you need for your services. When it comes to computers, you truly get what you pay for, and skimping in one area may leave you frustrated in the long run.

Client Reviews

“Carolina Data Recovery is terrific. We lost a RAID 5 array with critical data and we needed to recover it quickly. We spoke with 3 different venders, and Ron made a big impression over the phone. We did not regret our choice. He worked with us on shipping and priority, and within three days of placing that call we had our data back in 3 days.. HIGHLY recommended. .”
– Jim B.
“We had a hard drive failure at work, and we didn't have a backup. We went to Ron for a free analysis and he verified there was an issue within 15 minutes. We've never had to deal with data recovery before, and he was willing to answer any questions. He got our data restored to a new drive within 2 days. Would definitely recommend.”
– Seth Allen
