Data Recovery & Security in Maryland, Virginia & Washington, DC

What if you arrived at your office this morning to find all your computers and information technology were gone? Do you have a data protection plan in place to prevent the unwanted distribution of critical company and client information? When was the last time you tested your backup process to ensure flawless data recovery? Do you run regularly scheduled backups so you can recover in the event of an IT failure?

At Maryland Computer Service, we work with small and medium sized businesses in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC to provide custom data protection services, including full system recovery, selective recovery, and differential/incremental backups. Call us at (301) 202-6521 or contact us online today to learn more about how to protect your company’s data and sensitive information.


Data Recovery in MD, VA & DC

If you find that your business’s system has been hacked or you have experienced an IT system failure, your first reaction may be to panic about your missing data. However, our team of skilled IT technicians at Maryland Computer Service can alleviate that sense of panic by implementing a full system data recovery.

A full system data recovery allows you to recover and retrieve your entire system, including:

  • Data
  • Applications
  • Drivers
  • Settings
  • Operating Systems
  • And more

After a full system recovery is completed, your business’s entire IT system should start, look, and perform exactly as it did before its failure. Each employee’s computer will be returned to its original state.

Don’t let hackers, unexpected disasters (like fires or floods), or IT system failures prevent you from completing your work as scheduled. Call Maryland Computer Service at (301) 202-6521 or contact us online to set up a full system data recovery consultation.

Data Backup in Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC

Similar to a full system data recovery, differential and incremental backups allow you to safely back up and store sensitive business information to prevent data loss. Both differential and incremental backups reduce backup time; however, both of these types of backups may take longer to restore than a traditional, full system data recovery.

That said, the option to choose one of these two types of backups can help you manage your data storage as well as the amount of time it takes to perform the backup.

Incremental Backups

This is a type of data backup that doesn’t copy every single file from one backup to the next. These backups are not based on the last full backup, but on the last backup of any kind. Incremental backups only copy files that have been altered or changed since that last backup, which minimizes backup size.

Differential Backups

These backups are based on the last full backup that was performed and will copy all changes since the last full backup was performed. This means that each differential backup will be larger than the last.

Selective Backups

In a selective backup, you are able to manually select which files you do and do not want to back up at any given time. Selective data recovery is not recommended, since the backup is not automatic and employees must manually set a date and time to back up data. However, if a system failure occurs, backed up files and information will be readily available to restore your data and get you back online as quickly as possible.

Deciding which backup option will work for you depends on the level of data protection you want, as well as the amount of space and time that your business has available for these services. Call Maryland Computer Service at (301) 202-6521 or contact us online to figure out which data backup option is the best choice for your business.

What Causes IT System Failure?

Although some scenarios are extreme, you can never be too careful when it comes to data protection solutions. There are many things that can cause your IT system to fail, including:

  • Hackers – System hackers may try to invade your IT system to steal company data.
  • Theft – Intruders may damage and/or steal computers and other IT equipment.
  • System Failures – Computers, like any other electrical device, are sometimes unrepairable if they are too old or liquids are spilled in their vicinity.
  • Unexpected Disasters – A rare occurrence, unexpected disasters like flooding (from fire sprinklers, burst water pipes, etc.) or fire can cause your system to crash.

If you experience IT system failure, call Maryland Computer Service at (301) 202-6521 to recover your system so that your business can get up and running again as soon as possible.
