Google Voice – GV Notifier for Windows

If you are using Google Voice, here is a tool that you may like to use on your Windows PC. This tool allows you to have the freedom to text and make calls using your computer rather than having to rely on your mobile device 100% of the time. At Tech Help LA we find it very useful and thought we would share it with others. Help is our middle name.

Computer Hard Drive Cloning (Backup)

Tech Help LA CloningSystem Configurations
Operating System
Programs
Settings

If you installed expensive software on your computer and you rely on your systems functionality, you should consider cloning your hard drive. The process includes the purchase of a separate hard drive in equal or greater storage capacity than your current drive and making an exact duplicate drive that boots your computer.

Also, if you own a business that relies on a server and its software and settings over your network, this solution is one to consider and worth the expense considering the benefits and safe keeping. Since most backups focus on data, this solution focuses on the actual system and its settings and configuration.

Note:
This process only applies to Microsoft windows operating systems since Apple has a built in backup utility that can do this automatically

Contact Tech Help LA for more info and a quote.

Check Your Backup!!!

Don’t fall into the old paradigm of “it will never happen to me.” While there is certainly a chance that you will never have a need for theĀ backupsĀ you make of your files, if something does happen to your computer you will certainly be glad that you have them.

What is a Backup, Anyway?

Backup should be an essential part of your computing experience if you spend great amounts of time on your computer and/or use your computer for important personal or business dealings. There are too many stories of people who have lost all of their files due to system crashes or computer viruses to ignore. When you backup your files, you are storing your files separately from your computer.Ā In this way, if your computer crashes or is infected with a virus that results in a loss of files, you will still have access to your files onĀ backupĀ disks or whatever other backup program you choose to use, such as online backup. You can then restore your files to your computer proper from these backup sources.

Why Do I Need to Backup My Files?

Don’t fall into the old paradigm of “it will never happen to me.” While there is certainly a chance that you will never have a need for theĀ backups you make of your files, if something does happen to your computer you will certainly be glad that you have them. And you do not have to backup your entire computer, although this is certainly something that many people do, but only the files that are of the most importance to you.Ā Some things are easily replaced, and there is no need toĀ backupĀ these sorts of things, but those irreplaceable documents or files that are yours and yours alone should be saved in a place where they cannot be damaged. That way, no matter what happens to your computer, you can have security in the fact that all of your files are available in backup.

Make It Work Computer Support

There has been a LOT of talk and chatter circulating about a well known IT Computer Tech Support company closing their business known as “Make It Work”. The company serviced thousands of customers from Santa Barbara through Los Angeles down to San Diego. This unfortunate situation has left ex Make It Work customers in limbo. Many of their customers are irate concerning their pending contracts and losing money to the business after abruptly closing shop. MoreĀ importantly, since Make It Work did NOT allow their customers direct access to their service technicians, it has been a challenge to get in contact with the technicians they once trusted with their computers, data, and overall networks.

Due to the recent close of Make It Work’s business and services, Ron Patterson is gaining widespread exposure to his own business known as Tech Help LA.

Many ex Make It Work customers have diligently and hastily Googled and have found Ron Patterson’s whereabouts to get help with their computers for technical support. Ā Ron statesĀ “By the graces of GodĀ I was smart enough to have the courage to branch off and start my own business that made more sense using better tech tools and embracing remote technical support”. Ron left Make It Work on good terms almost exactly 1 year to the day before their business completely failed. 34 Jobs were lost and payroll was still pending and unpaid. Company cars wereĀ repossessedĀ and customers ranted in disbelief.

Message from our CEO –Ā Ron Patterson:

Ron Patterson Senior Technician - Tech Help LA

My Company has been in business now for over a year and the demand for technical support is growing constantly.

At the very least keep Tech Help LA in mind as a reliable source forĀ technicalĀ support, web design & development, social media services, and general technology consulting.
