If you have a reliable iMac, you bet it’d be hard for you to do any task when it breaks down. So that’s why you need to repair it to the finest iMac repair plantation that you can find. However, sometimes repair can be costly, especially if the damage in your iMac has become very severe. So that’s why knowing the ways to take good care of it will be necessary.
1. Repair Disk Permissions
It is a good idea to ensure periodically that your disk permissions are in good health – especially after upgrading or installing new software. Open Disk Utility (in / Application / Utilities) and choose your HDD icon in the left panel. Click the First Aid tab, and click Repair Disk Permissions to start the process (can take several minutes). If Disk Utility finds a problem, it will fix it!
2. Backup your data!
To prevent things that are not desired, make sure you do back-up on a regular basis. You can save it to a CD, DVD, external HDD, iPod, iDisk, or anything else that can be used to store data. Do not forget to delete the copy files contained on your hard drive to make additional space. If you want to know how to back up, choose Mac Help from the Help menu in the Finder and do a search for “back up files”. Confused to determine what should be backed up and not? Look at the following page.
3. Restart your computer once in a while
Although your Mac can work non-stop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you also need to restart occasionally to refresh the system if you have a habit to turn on the computer all day. This can help to prevent problems.
4. Check whether there are viruses or not
The number of viruses that threaten Macs is not as much as the number that threatens Windows, but that does not mean the Mac is immune to it. If you do not already have antivirus software, you should consider buying it. If you already have, make sure that your virus definition is always up-to-date.
