Anyone who’s ever owned a piece of tech in their lives up to now will likely have put off getting something fixed. Whether it’s delaying updates to your phone or waiting it out for a games console or PC to ‘get better on its own’, millions of people are playing around with their devices without actively getting them fixed or at least diagnosed by a professional. But why is this? Is it a case of taking out time, effort and money to do so? Is it a case of looking for a repair being inconvenient? Whatever the reason, leaving broken devices to fester for weeks or even months on end is simply going to lead your data and your tech up the wrong alley completely.
Consider – if you’re using a smartphone or a laptop, or similar – the preciousness of the data that you have in your hands. What if, one day, you start to experience a slight blip – a mild annoyance, but one which is gradually getting worse – what do you do? Do you choose to ignore it in the hope that whatever it is will pass? This probably isn’t the best route to take. If you bank online or work from home, for example – and if you don’t have access to data backups or cloud software – you could risk losing it all, and all through simple complacency. It simply isn’t worth it!
Games consoles, too, can suffer malfunctions and damage. Imagine spending hours getting through the campaign mode of a certain game only to find your data completely wiped or inaccessible due to a system failure or a problem that could be fixed. Do you just give up? What’s more, getting a slight niggle or a problem fixed early on will prevent your devices from travelling this very route – the risk of you developing data-losing bugs and gremlins will be greatly reduced if you simply get your device(s) checked out and given a clean bill of health.
