Early Morning IT Maintenance

Video Blog from DC the Computer Guy

One of the most important things I’ve learned from being a small business owner and running an IT Managed Services Provider is that there is no single factor that affects security and performance as much as IT Maintenance.

With this recently on my mind, I decided to record a video blog to discuss why it is so important. Click on the video below to watch.

As you might imagine, there are a lot of different parts in properly performing IT Maintenance – more than I realized when I first started on this path as a small business MSP. In the video, I talk about all of the reasons why IT Maintenance is important, and in doing so I touch on parts that could use a bit more explaining. So below are some specific resources that will help you to better grasp everything that is involved.


There’s a reason I started with backups in the video. When it comes to recovering from problems that include everything from hardware failures to cyberattacks, I can help you recover from anything so long as you have a good backup. What a lot of people, including some in IT, don’t understand is that having a solid backup is more than just copying information to a flash drive and throwing it in a drawer.

We give you a good look at backups in this blog.


Speaking of cyberattacks, one of the most common and problematic is email phishing. This is such a widespread problem that many businesses have hired security companies to test their employees with phishing emails to see how well they can spot and void them.

If you’re not familiar with phishing, take a look at this blog.


When it comes to updates, antivirus programs get neglected more often than any other. New threats are being identified daily, and antivirus companies are continuously developing new ways to combat them, without these updates, the antivirus program isn’t doing you any good. In addition, new computers include trial periods that could be as little as 90 days or as long as a year – after that time, the program ceases to function.

For more information on antivirus, check out this blog.

There are a lot of reasons I’ve been able to successfully grow Clark Computer Services, but I strongly believe that a commitment to IT Maintenance has been one of the most important. When it comes down to it, claiming that you make customer service your highest priority falls a little flat if you’re not taking care of your client’s maintenance needs.
