Importance of Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is one of the most ignored aspects of PC ownership, most people seem to think that the PC doesn't need preventive maintenance, and so you should just use it until it breaks, and then repair or replace it. Some reasons why there should be a preventive maintenance plan for PC:

• Preventive Maintenance Saves Money: Avoiding problems with your PC will save you money in the long run, compared with laying out cash for new components or repair jobs.

• Preventive Maintenance Saves Time: Because it saves you the much bigger hassles of dealing with system failures and data loss. Most preventive maintenance procedures are quite simple compared to troubleshooting and repair procedures.

• Preventive Maintenance Helps Safeguard Your Data: The data on the hard disk is more important than the hardware that houses it. Taking steps to protect this data therefore makes sense, and that is what Preventive maintenance is all about.

• Preventive Maintenance Improves Performance: Some parts of system will actually degrade in performance over time, and preventive maintenance will help to improve the speed of your system in these respects.
