POWER OUTAGES CAUSE OF 45.3% OF THE DISAPPEARANCE OF INFORMATION

Sudden changes in temperature, both at home and at work, they can disappear contained in the computers, sometimes irrecoverable.

Sudden changes in temperature are not only bad for humans. The computer also suffers, but instead of catching a cold may suffer a loss of data. These problems arise mainly in summer and are caused “by the rise and fall of temperature in offices and at home because they are put on and remove the air conditioning,” says Miguel Ruiz, Recovery Labs technical director .

Computer parts themselves being out of step with those variations of degree and that computers do fail and can not access the data. To avoid them, do not put the computer to the equipment if you turn off and on much or attempt to restart after the ruling.

YOU MAY LOSE YOUR DATA IF THE TEMPERATURE CHANGES

At 35 degrees and a fever.

While all computers have a fan system that generates a flow of air to prevent overheating, there are problems if the machine much temperature increase and down at once. “Working at 35 degrees is a problem for any electronic device, said Ruiz, although the problem is that the computer does not reach 100 degrees, but then reduced. The PC may be about 45-50 degrees in temperature, while the hard disk can reach 60.

The hardest thing, the blackout, dust and water

Blackouts are the main causes of data loss in computers, according to figures provided by American Power Conversion “, followed by the storms. The powder is also another enemy in the computer malfunctions, also if it affects the hard drive, increases the problem. Damage from water have led some companies to design a keyboard resistant to liquids and even sudden shock.

TIPS FOR NO SPOILER ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES

Do not plug them barefoot
One of the recommendations made from American Power Conversion “. Nor can we plug in electrical equipment with wet hands.

Without antenna storm
In cases of storm, not only necessary to unplug the power cord, but also the antenna. Should be in televisions, computers and audiovisual equipment in general.

Cables without tape
The joints or seams should not be made with tape, transparent tape or other materials not approved. If you have a device with a bare wire, change it immediately.

No gluing them to the wall
This rule also applies to computers that have the ventilation system in front and behind, so they need space to drive and take the air. The same goes for televisions and stereos.

A plug for each
You must use a socket for each application. And connect each device at a different time so as not to produce an electrical overload.
