Hard Disk Maintenance to Avoid Uunexpected Windows Crash

It is very important to make sure the hard disk is in a pretty good shape. A lot of things depend on your hard disk and if it crashes all of a sudden, you know you have a lot to lose. Normally, you should do a backup to an external hard disk (or the cloud) every now and then, but even at that, there is still a chance that your hard disk may stop working all of a sudden, which may result in losing some important files you just got. There are various things you need to do often to maintain your hard disk, which are:

CHKDSK (Pronounced Check Disk) is a Windows command that checks your hard disk for errors and attempts to fix them. It checks the integrity of the file system and fixes any error, including repairing bad clusters.
CHKDSK also scans for physical errors on the surface of the hard disk (also called Bad sector) and attempts to repair them. You should regularly do this to keep your hard drive in good shape and avoid any sudden crash.

How to run CHKDSK on Windows 7

  • Go to My Computer
  • Right-click on your hard drive and select Properties

  • Select the Tools tab, select Check now. After that, mark the box that says Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors

  • Hit the Start button, you should be told the process can’t be executed while Windows is running”.

You have to restart your computer to complete it and at the next boot, let the program run and do not interrupt it. Depending on the size of your hard disk, it may take over one hour to complete the whole. You should see errors encountered logged on your screen and if they got fixed.

2. Defragmentation
Defragmentation is a windows feature that re-arranges files stored on the hard disk in such a way that they occupy contiguous storage locations. This makes your system perform relatively faster. This process helps to organize the data from the HD, which facilitates procedures for reading and writing. It also makes files to be easily accessible on your hard drive.How to Defragment your hard disk

  • Go to My Computer
  • Right-Click on your hard disk and select Properties
  • Click the Tools tab and select Defragment now

The rest is easy, but you may be unable to use your computer while the process is running.

Other Hard Disk Maintenance Tips

  • Be sure you have enough free space.
  • Always do a proper shutdown, avoid sudden power off using the power button.
  • Protect your computer from sudden shock and vibration. Vibration can throw off the delicate internal mechanisms of a drive. 
  • Update the operating system
  • Remove unnecessary programs
  • Remove unnecessary programs

5 Best Android-Based Cloud-Storage Apps!

This is a guest post compiled by Anna Marsh for Shelaf.com 

There is only so much space that your computer can take up. Once it goes over, your computer’s performance will start to fall. But thanks to the advent of cloud storage, space will no longer be an issue. It is efficient and portable as you no longer have to carry a hard drive around.

As a matter of fact, you can also use your phone to retrieve your files. How about that huh? It is all because of cloud-storage apps that are right for the taking. If Android is your go-to OS, then these are the apps that will store and manage your files.

1. Amazon Cloud Storage

First off is Amazon Cloud Storage. This app comes with Amazon Prime and is a great choice for storing your photos and videos. Free users can get about 5GB of memory to store their music, videos, and other content. They can upgrade it to unlimited storage for over $60 a year.

Even if you don’t have Prime, you can use the app. But in order to have access to 5GB of RAM, you will need to pay about $12 a year. It is often buggy, but nothing that is too bothersome. Enjoy accessing your files any time you like.

2. Dropbox

Believe us when we say; it really wasn’t hard to squeeze this into the list. The main aim of Dropbox is to allow users to put all of their files in a safe and heavily secured place. This is due to the fact that Dropbox values the privacy of their users more than anything.

The latest update allows users to sign PDFs right from Dropbox. The free basic account provides users with up to 2GB of free space. If you want more space, you can upgrade it to 1TB for £7.99 per month. All of your files will be synced automatically on all devices.

3. IDrive

With one easy setup and one account to operate from, your file storage woes are no more. The only downfall that too slightly, is the slump in performance from its competitors. The security is enterprise-class and provides it for any device you use. You can manage your backup on all devices from just one location.

IDrive Express offers quick backup and retrieval of your data up to 3TB in less than a week via physical storage shipment. It also ensures that there is no bandwidth usage as well. You can also transfer and store your files 256-bit AES encryption with a user-defined key that is not stored anywhere on the servers.

4. Google Drive

If offering users 15GB of free online storage doesn’t intrigue you, you must be daft. Google Drive is just about the nicest place for you to store your photos, designs, drawings, recordings, projects and oodles of other content. Just so you know your data is automatically synced and can be accessed from any device out there.

You can also quickly invite anyone else in your social circle to view, collaborate and download the files that you want without any email attachments.

5. Resilio

Resilio gives you the power to sync any file you would in a fast and scalable manner. Powered by BitTorrent’s leading peer-to-peer technology, Resilio is bent on delivering powerful solutions using unique private cloud software. Capable of delivering large files over the internet, Resilio became the world’s first product to utilize such a powerful protocol for commercial uses.

You will be able to send large files much faster, even over long distances and unreliable networks.

Now that you know what is on the table, we surely hope that you go with the one that best suits your needs.

Mobile World Congress 2018: Top Smartphones Expect to be Announced

Mobile World Congress is the biggest mobile event of the year, seeing the launch of many of the top smartphones, smartwatches and tablets, as well as seeing the emergence of the hottest new trends in mobile.

This year, MWC runs from February 26th to March 1. As of 2011, Barcelona, Spain has been home to the event, which will garner around 100,000 attendees. MWC18 will once again take place at Fira Gran Via with selected events, including 4YFN, taking place at Fira Montjuïc. Rumors indicate some big phone announcements will take place this year. One of the biggest ones we are expecting is also one of the most popular smartphones in the world — the newest Samsung Galaxy flagship.

Samsung: Unveiling the Galaxy S9 & S9+With the exception of last year’s Galaxy S8, Samsung has normally used MWC to announce the latest iteration in the Galaxy S series. Last year deferment of this plan was due to the Note 7 fiasco, but with that blunder out the way, all rumors indicate a return to normal procedure.
One of the strongest pieces of evidence is a media invite and poster sent out by Samsung for an Galaxy Unpacked event on Sunday before MWC (February 25 at 12 pm EST).

Samsung’s S9 tease is all about redefining the camera, so it’s here we expect to see the real innovation. Rumours suggest that the new S9 will carry a similar design to the S8, but with the camera offering dual aperture.

  • See: Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Will Officially Launch on February 25th

Huawei P20 Last Year, Huawei took full advantage of MWC to announce the P10. Huawei follows a similar product segmentation to Samsung, with the P series being the more approachable flagship and analogous to the Galaxy S series, while the Mate series is for the power user like the Galaxy Note series. Our sources suggest that the flagship Huawei might introduce at the MWC 2018 will be called the P20.

Nokia: 1, 7+ & 9 a PossibilityWe are very happy to see Nokia come back and make its name among the android world, yet taking another step to rule the mobile world once again. MWC 2018 might be where we see the first real Nokia flagship since HMD Global took over the brand. As good as the Nokia 8 was, it struggled to stand out from the competition, because the fans were not much impressive. Nokia 8 did not contain flagship specifications, its older design and small display failed to appeal to many fans. Hence this year our expectations are again pretty high, and we are expecting something much better, and it also seems like Nokia is promising something, close competition to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone X. The Nokia 9 rumor mill quieted down after that, but recently, HMD sent out press invites for an event on February 25 at 10 am EST — right before MWC. There’s a good chance that Nokia could be announcing the heavily leaked Nokia 7+ and Nokia 1, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for the Nokia 9 flagship.

BlackBerry: KeyOne & PRIV Sequels a PossibilitySince TCL took over as its official hardware maker, BlackBerry has been on a roll, releasing several well-received smartphones. At CES, we learned BlackBerry will be releasing at least two new smartphones this year, and rumors indicate that they might be announced at MWC.

Rumor has it that one of these devices will be a sequel to the KeyOne. While we’re not sure of the name, fans have been calling it the KeyTwo, which would make logical sense, although rumors indicate the code name is Athena.
BlackBerry may be reviving the PRIV with a sequel titled Uni. TCL has registered this trademark with USPTO only days before MWC 2018. Last Year, TCL did the same with “KeyOne” right before its announcement, which lends some credence to this rumor.

  • Check out: The First Ever Blackberry Dual-SIM Smartphone – Aurora With 4GB Ram
Motorola: New G6 Variants a PossibilityThe latest rumors suggest that Motorola is planning to announce a series of successors to last year’s Moto G5 lineup. The phones we’re hoping to see are the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and most importantly to US readers, the Moto G6 Plus.

While Motorola does not have an event scheduled at MWC, other phone makers are using the media attention around the conference to generate publicity. With the timing of the leaks on the G6 front, it’s definitely plausible that Motorola could hold a separate event around MWC to announce these phones.

LG: New V30 Variant Called ‘Alpha’According to rumors, LG has had a rough start to 2018. Its flagship lineup, the G series, apparently has been delayed to later in the year because LG doesn’t agree with its current design. The previous reports indicate they might abandon the G series naming altogether as they were looking to rebrand in the hopes of stopping a multi-year decline in sales.
At first, the G7 was rumored to be announced at MWC, but now it looks like LG will instead announce another phone — a new variant of the LG V30.

With Mobile World Congress, we should get our first introduction to the direction of smartphones in 2018. With the Galaxy S9 leading the charge, we’ll have a good indication of the design choices and specs for phone releases later in the year.

Which phones are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.
