Firstly, why should you back up…
One of the main components of your PC is its hard drive. It stores all your software, personal files and emails, but unfortunately it is also the most vulnerable part of your PC! It contains a set of magnetic discs, spinning at up to 10,000 RPM, and due to the speed and tolerances involved, the slightest imperfection, power failure, sudden movement of the PC or even a bit of dust can cause data errors or even a hard drive ‘crash’. A crash is invariably “fatal” i.e. you will lose EVERYTHING stored on it, including ALL your files, documents, photos and emails, and is not as uncommon as we would like to think. Even if you already backup your data to an external hard drive or memory stick then what about if you we’re unfortunate enough to be burgled, or worse still, a fire? Chances are you would lose these too!
There is nothing you can do to stop a hard drive crash however there is something you can do to protect your important data. An increasingly popular solution is simply to keep a backup of your data at another location by transferring it through the internet i.e. ‘cloud’ backup. Whatever then happens, even if you have to go and buy yourself a new PC, you will still be able to recover all your valuable data.
You can buy a subscription to a service that will continuously back up any changes to your documents, photos etc. to a secure data storage centre via your internet connection. Your data is both sent and stored securely so that no one else is able to read your data, including the service provider. The last 30 versions of each of your files will be stored and you can retrieve just a few files, which perhaps you may have modified or deleted by mistake, or download the whole lot in the case of loss or a catastrophic failure.
