What is BleachBit?

What is BleachBit software and why would it have been used to erase data on Hillary Clinton’s email server?

Jonathan Zdziarski, a computer security expert, characterized BleachBit as a fairly “amateur” tool that doesn’t raise any red flags.

“It looks like the type of tool someone would run who’s conscious of cleaning old crud off their system,” Zdziarski said. “Someone trying to cover their tracks would likely pay for and use a much more expensive, specialized data destruction tool.”

What is BleachBit? Little-known tool at center of Clinton email controversy

“Use BleachBit to:

  • Free disk space
  • Reduce the size of backups and the time to create them by removing unnecessary files
  • Maintain privacy
  • Improve system performance (by vacuuming the Firefox database, for example)
  • Prepare whole disk images for compression (common for “ghost” backups and virtual machines) by wiping free disk space”
  • Shred or erase emails and data on a hard drive.

Protect your computer during Hurricane Season!

Protect your computer during Hurricane Season!

As a Computer Consultant, I see many disasters waiting to happen with my clients equipment and data before, during and after hurricane season. Without taking some necessary precautions, all your precious files could literally be gone with the wind.

I have seen grown men reduced to tears because they put all their eggs in one basket; then the basket disappears. With the advent of todays large hard drives, it’s easy to store all your pictures, movies, music, documents, financial data etc. all on the hard drive of your PC or Mac computer. If the hard drive should fail, you’ll lose all your data. Since the hard drive is the only moving part of a PC or Mac computer, it’s usually the first part to fail. The old saying “it’s not if, but when” is fully applicable here.

Thankfully there are a number of ways to protect all your files, and it can all be done automatically and you don’t have to remember to do it yourself. Two great automatic online backup applications that work on a Mac or PC are Carbonite and DropBox. These programs back up your pictures and documents as well as your iTunes library and store them offline in the cloud. This means your data is stored on the companies computer storage and can be sent and retrieved over the internet. You simply tell the program what to backup, and it constantly backs up those specific folders. Restoring lost files is equally as simple.

Of course you can also buy an external USB hard drive, and use the backup software that comes with it. This backup software is very easy to setup and you can store the USB drive offsite in a PO Box, storage unit, safe deposit box, mail it to a Snowbird etc., away from harms way.

For more information on creating a backup plan for hurricane season, Please contact Vero Beach Computer Repair.

Do I really need a computer anymore?

Published on June 3, 2014 by in Uncategorized

Do I really need a computer anymore?
I get asked this question a lot. For the majority of home computer users, the simple answer is…NO!
Most home computer users get their email, look at a few websites, online banking/bill pay, or the real guru – create a document or a spreadsheet. All this can be done on a tablet, iPad or Android, and yes, even a smartphone. You can even print to your printer these days with any of these devices!
Would you like to get rid of that clunky computer and all the wires and cables around your desk? Good news! It’s easy and very affordable. Whats nice is you can have your “computer” in your purse, backpack or pocket wherever you go.
If you would like to learn more about tablet computing, please call an expert in all aspects of Information Technology at Vero Beach Computer Repair today. The future of computing is here today!
