Data Backup

Your data is important and computers/phones can often be unreliable, especially when you need them the most! In these cases, we provide data backup for a variety of hard drive issues. We can extract data from most corrupt hard drives and back up your critical data onto your choice of USB storage such as external hard drive or a flash drive.

Virus Removal

Harmful software may find its way onto your computer, even with the proper antivirus. These files include viruses, adware, and spyware. These files can harm your computer, give you popup ads, track your internet and computer usage. Print and Technology center is here to help. We can remove those harmful programs and help drastically lower the chance of them returning. Students receive a free copy of Sophos antivirus, at no cost, to help protect you in the future
