There are 2 kinds of memory in your computer – short-term and long-term. The short-term memory, called RAM, is erased every time your computer is powered down – no data is lost when RAM is erased. The long-term memory is your hard drive, where your data is stored (Windows operating system, pictures, videos, documents, and other data) for use. That data is not erased when your computer is powered down. If you’ve had your computer for a while, you may notice slow-downs. Upgrading your RAM is a great way to speed up your computer, and it only takes minutes. MCS doesn’t charge to install RAM upgrades!! Hard drive upgrades are a little more time-consuming, but are well worth the cost. MCS can make an exact copy of your data to another, larger hard drive in just minutes, adding more storage and value to your computer. Call 507.458.5342 today for more information!!
