Dont Forget – Back Up
It’s something that every computer owner fears, a hard drive crash. It may or not happen on your computer but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take the precautions, just in case. Anything digital can be lost and not just in a hard drive crash. Anything can happen to your computer (stolen, drinks spilled on it, etc) and leave you at a lost. To prevent a lot of future headaches, it’s best to take preventive measures and backup your data. The next question is, where?
Well, there are a lot of options. The best idea is to have your files stored on a remote backup server. There are tons of options to choose from such as Backblaze, or Crashplan. These are highly extensive programs with a fee. An easier to use program for backup is Dropbox. Dropbox is a program that can be installed on your computer but that also your dropbox can be accessed from signing on a web browser, as well. It keeps versions and deleted files for 30 days too! Another option to consider is Evernote. Evernote is a note taking program that will share your files on many devices at once. As you can tell, there are
many backup data services out there. Choosing one is primarily up to you and your preferences but just remember, to do it. You want to “Back up, before you wish you had.”
