I am starting my own PC Repair consulting business soon and would like to solicit some advice. Business practices, services to offer, service to not offer.... etc. I am fresh out of school (which doesn't teach you much) and have limited real world experience. I welcome everything you experts have to say, but I am especially interested in what stuff would be useful to purchase.
Do I need diagnostic software/equipment? (I am currently considering http://www.pcdservicecenter.com/
Best way to back-up client machines. I am currently considering Acronis, but have been reading a lot of bad reviews of the latest versions. I like that Acronis is kinda of an all in one package, backup, sync, imaging software.
What is the best software/method to virus removal? Currently I just take the hard drive out of the infected machine and plug it into my computer via a USB converter and scan it with a couple different A/V programs like Malware Bytes, AVG.
Are there any "Must Haves" for the tech guy's tool belt?
I cant think of anything else specific I want to ask, but I welcome anything you guys have to say on the subject.
Thank you very much.
