The Backup Club – A Computer Origins Initiative

Richard Hall - Wednesday, October 29, 2014

You don’t need car insurance.

But of course you do! You never know when you might crash, and the same goes for computers – they could crash at any time and you risk losing all of your precious photos, documents, videos etc.

But what if when that happens, you could simply restore your computer to exactly how it was before the event? No worrying over whether key photographs of your wedding day have been lost or if you now have to start a whole new tax document, instead everything would be right where you left it. It would be as though the crash had never happened.

This is where The Backup Club comes in.

Starting from only $23 per month, The Backup Club is the premium way of keeping your computer safe in the event of a hardware or software failure, something that could otherwise incur incalculable costs. Customers who sign up receive flexible, regular backups of their data and professional, non-intrusive monitoring to ensure they are successful, meaning you don’t have to worry about them as much. And in the event of your computer (or computers!) suffering a critical issue, notify us and you’ll be assisted quickly and effectively in returning it to its optimal state, like the problem was simply a bad dream.

Example: Jane, like many of us has a computer. Unfortunately her data has disappeared and she is left with no way of regaining it. Unless of course she is a Backup Club member. Jane can call Computer Origins to let us know what has occurred and armed with the professional assistance of our staff and her backup drive, set about restoring her computer to a fully-operational state.

What’s required of a customer seeking to join The Backup Club? All you need is your computer, an external hard drive and a copy of Acronis True Image which is sold here at Computer Origins. From this point a backup scheme will be performed by a Computer Origins certified professional and will have you ready to go in no time at all! Speaking of time, The Backup Club is well worth any computer user’s to ensure that all of their data is constantly safe.

Benefits:

· Guaranteed safety of your files thanks to regular backups;

· Low monthly fee for an invaluable service – from $23 per month;

· Vigilant monitoring of backup success and rapid reaction time in the case of a failure;

· Assistance when your computer data suffers damage in both recovering data and your computer’s previous state.

Customers can live in peace knowing that their computer data’s recovery is in safe hands with The Backup Club.

Wall of Pain

Richard Hall - Monday, April 22, 2013


A customer said to me recently that up until he experienced a failed computer hard drive of his own, he believed data loss was a myth.

A myth?

It then dawned on me from my cone of obliviousness that you, my valued customers do not see the problem of data loss as extensively as I - until now.

Now live is the Computer Origins "Wall of Pain" webpage, designed and maintained to express the reality of data loss.

Hard Disk Heartbreak

Richard Hall - Thursday, September 02, 2010
Here at Computer Origins we love it when any job goes well. High five's are passed around when we're able to achieve success in ridding a computer of a virus to finding a pesky hardware failure and beyond.

What we don't enjoy however is being unable to retrieve data from a broken hard drive. You know, the external hard disk that dropped from your desk at home and is now making that clunking sound?
It's even harder ringing a customer and passing on the despairing news that this is the case, at least for what Computer Origins is able to technically achieve.

Are you at home or work and everything is going well with your computer? We have looked into your future and some bad news; one or more of your hard drives will fail eventually, possibly taking all your data with it. Or perhaps your laptop or external hard drive will be stolen in the middle of the night with that report due Monday morning at uni or work.

If you say you've backed up your data then guess again; you're probably doing it incorrectly and you are still at risk.

Computer Origins' definition of a backup is as follows: your important data must be in at least two (2) locations at the same time.

Simple? Perhaps not, because instead of having your data in at least two locations, for instance your laptop and an external hard drive, you have moved it (not copied) all to an external hard drive! The risk of losing data has not been mitigated and all you're left with is false security.

Viva la backing up correctly! Give Computer Origins a call or drop by the shop to talk about never losing your data!
