Storing your digital data in only one place is dangerous. According to reports, 91% of many users don’t backup their computers at least once a day. How terrible would it be if your years of photos, documents, music, movies and more were all gone in a second? Data loss can occur at any time to anybody, and many times human error is the number one cause. That’s why backing up your data is extremely vital. Here is why you should backup your computer and other devices right now!
Reasons to Backup Your Computer
Accidents happen. You may lose your laptop, unintentionally delete something, or lose data through a natural disaster. These are just some of the ways you can lose all your valuable information. It’s important to take the time to protect the data on your computer and devices, so if an accident happens, you know your files are safe, secure, backed up and easily restorable!
How to Backup Your Computer
There can be a few warning signs before your hard drive crashes. And when there is, we ignore them most of the time. The only guaranteed way to ensure you don’t lose everything is through a trusted and tested home data backup system. GCComp Computer Repair & Maintenance can evaluate your existing home data backup system, assess your backup needs and offer solutions created to match your budget.
Other Ways to Backup Your Computer
- Thumb Drives: These are common among consumers because they are easy to use and convenient to carry around. However, they cannot store a lot of data and can get lost easily. Therefore, these are not a permanent solution.
- External Backup Drive: These are a great option but can get expensive. The Apple AirPort Time Capsule holds 3TB of storage and can do automatic backups when on Wi-Fi.
- Backup Through Syncing: Options like Dropbox or Google Drive are super easy to create and maintain. After the initial setup, your computer will automatically backup your files.
Recognize that ultimately, all hard drives will fail. So, you need to be prepared for the worst and ensure you backup your computer and protect it. With GCComp backup solutions, you don’t have to worry about losing your data or do any work to confirm your files are safe. To learn more about our convenient computer backup options, contact us!
