The importance of general health check ups

4 February 2016

When it comes to general health check-ups for their computer and IT systems, companies are notoriously bad. When we’re discussing our IT services in Manchester with new clients, they’re always keen to know about firewall solutions, cabling, anti-virus protection and other IT support and services, but they neglect general health check-ups. It’s clear that companies and businesses don’t regard health checks as a vital part of IT support.

However, here at DTE, we value general health check-ups immensely and we offer it as part of our range of IT services in Manchester. But why are health check-ups important and how can they help?

The longer you have your computer/system, and the more you use it, the slower it becomes. This is because whenever you create, download and subsequently delete files and/or applications, traces get left behind. Because 100% of it doesn’t actually disappear off your computer, it clogs up your system and causes it to run more slowly. You can’t actually see any of this residue left behind, so you continue about your business as more and more continues to clog up your system. This can leave your computer running at a sub-par performance and means you aren’t working efficiently.

General health check-ups unclog all this waste material left behind and leave your computer system running as efficiently as can be. It’s important to complete regular computer health check-ups for optimum performance.

Without running general health check-ups other problems can occur including:

  • Data loss
  • Privacy breach
  • Sensitive files left exposed
