Backup Your Files…
before it’s too late
I promise that there will be a day when something happens to your important files and they will be lost forever…unless you take some precautions. The best peace-of-mind precaution is to establish yourself with a reliable file-backup system. Nowadays, backup services are becoming more cost effective to upload to the Cloud instead of saving everything to a Flash Drive. Sure, a Flash Drive might be cheaper in the long run since you only have to purchase it once, but what if it gets lost, fails, or eaten by a fire? That is where cloud-storage stands apart from a physical backup; everything is off-site and safe from harm. Also, these cloud-storage services have the necessary knowledge and resources to provide a safe and secure environment for your data.
In addition to the above, there is also risk to your files especially if you share a computer with someone. Even if that person you share your computer with logs into a different account it’s still possible for them to cause enough havoc to render your files useless.
Some scenarios that files can become inaccessible:
*failed system updates.
*hard drive failure.
Okay, so what is a good cloud storage service to use? I personally use CrashPlan for file-backup. There is a monthly fee, however this service provides unlimited storage at a reasonable price. Not only does it provide unlimited space, but the backup application can be configured in many different ways. One of the best features is being able to restore a file from different backup points in the past. Furthermore, these files can be accessed from anywhere if needed since they reside in the Cloud.
