ASL Computer Services

XMAS and New Year offer

December 17, 2015

For quite some time ASL has been a reseller of the very good online backup solution called Clunk Click from Risc IT Group.

From now until the 31st Jan 2016 we are giving away free 60 day trials of this online backup solution so you can see for yourself just how good it is.

We will install this on your PC, via a remote control session, free of charge and it will be fully functional for a full 60 days. At the end of the trial it will cease to backup your files and you can just uninstall the program. Or if you prefer you can keep the backup system for the reduced price of £7.20 + VAT per Gigabyte, per annum.

We have quite a few customers who use this backup solution, and the typical account size is 3 to 6 Gb. A 6Gb backup account will end up costing less than £1 a week including VAT, not a lot for peace of mind.

If you want to take up this offer just give me a call on 07852 159092

Backup: My Pictures

December 10, 2015

We all take lots of digital photos, and they mainly end up in the “My Pictures” folder on your laptop or desktop PC. That’s great because you can view them on your PC screen whenever you like. But what happens when your PC hard drive fails? We get lots of calls from customers that have lost years and years worth of photos. Often we can recover some or all of the digital pictures, but it’s a time consuming, and therefore costly, process.

It’s much better to backup your digital photographs automatically. There are a number of cloud storage providers that allow you to automatically backup copies of your photos to their cloud storage for a small charge, or some are even free. This means that it’s not a disaster when your hard drive fails. Take a look at Amazon, Dropbox, Flickr, Google, and Onedrive. My personal favourites at the moment are Google for backing up from my desktop PC and Onedrive for my tablet / smartphone pictures.

So don’t delay, backup your digital photos before your hard drive fails.

It’s easy to setup but if you do need help just give us a call.
