Transfer data from an old computer to a new device

We’ll begin by configuring your new computer, laptop, phone or tablet, so that it works how you expect and would like it to. This includes getting your new device ready to receive the incoming data and making sure there’s enough room.

After that, we’ll also transfer all the data that’s important to you from your old device to the new one so that you have all the files you need in exactly the right places. We won’t just dump it all in a random folder – if you like we can help you get set up right, with a well-organised file structure.

Honestly… nothing makes our Geeks happier than well-organised data!

Setup an automated backup of your data

Having a data backup plan in place is essential both for personal use and business owners. An automated backup of your data will be configured so that you have one less thing to worry about every day! It will be backed up in one of two ways, both of which will be offered and explained by your technician.

The first option is with an external hard drive – which is a portable device that will be connected to your computer and will store your data.

The second option is to use cloud backup solutions – which is saved online using special backup software.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between data backup and recovery?

    Data backup is essentially making a second copy of your data (a backup copy) and storing it somewhere safe. That way, if something goes wrong, you can access your data from a different location – your backup source.

    Data recovery is attempting to retrieve data that has been lost or corrupted. This process is much easier if you’ve previously backed it up. To learn more about how to back up your data or to recover lost data, call Geeks2U today.

  • Why do you need a data backup and disaster recovery plan?

    Planning for when things go wrong is essential – particularly when it comes to keeping your important data safe. Lost data isn’t always intentional – damage can come about unintentionally or via a virus. However, the damage happens, having a backup plan in place so you continue to access your important data is vital. Speak to you today about the best way to back up your data.
