These are a few common causes of system crashes:

  • Mechanical Drive Failure
  • System File Corruption
  • Virus Attack of System Files

While these situations are not entirely avoidable, there are some preventative measures one can take to help reduce their occurrence.

  • Purchase the highest quality enterprise-grade hard drives. This can help reduce the chances of  mechanical failure.
  • Make sure your computer has completely shut down before turning off the power switch or surge strip. It’s essential to allow the computer to release any essential information that was partially in memory back to the hard drive. Also, files that are being updated and written to must not be partially written.
  • Use a high quality up-to-date anti-virus program.
