Cleaning and maintenance
Keeping your computer clean and well maintained will keep it working properly and reduce the need for expensive repairs. A well-maintained computer will run faster, more efficiently and crash less than one that has not been maintained.
Practicing good maintenance procedures will
- save money - less chance of items breaking down and having to replace them,
- save time - improved performance means less waiting time and less breaking down means more usage, and
- protects your data by backing it up.
