Limits to our support: SOJC IT is not able to provide extensive support for personal (non-SOJC-owned) computers or software. Our staff and student employees are happy to troubleshoot problems with a program, but we cannot accommodate tutorial requests. We can diagnose and potentially fix issues with external hard drives not reading correctly, but SOJC IT is not equipped to perform data recovery for failing external hard drives.
