Tech 911 believes in reliability when it comes to our business and our technology.
We use various software suites and tools to help maintain our client machines. Many of these tools are behind the scenes, but important for what they do.
One of these tools is SpinRite.
Every storage drive (HDD or SSD) we sell has been put through the SpinRite Level 4 process to verify the device is free from major defects. Additionally, doing this informs the drive itself about smaller defects. Small media defects are present on every drive and accounted for by the manufacturer - this is normal. What we do is inform the drive ahead of time of these "bad sectors", so there is no chance your data is written there. It is one additional small barrier we put in place between you and data failure.
It takes time to run, but we feel it is time well spent. Your data is as important to us as it is to you.
You don't need to know how SpinRite works to enjoy the added protection we feel it provides. However, if you want to learn more about SpinRite and how it works, please see the video below.
