Having all of your data in only one place is dangerous, in today’s fast-paced world, backing up your files is one of the most important things to do. Computer loss, theft, natural disaster, and accidental deletion, are just some of the ways that you can lose the data you’ve spent so long creating and accumulating. The only way to prepare for the unexpected is to have a good backup strategy in place; creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it’s also important to make sure that those two places aren’t on the same type of device.
Flash drives are a great way to store data, they are portable and a fast way to also share data since it works on most computers, unfortunately because it’s a small device it’s easy to lose and can’t store large amounts of data. All hard drives will eventually fail; it’s just a question of when and whether or not you’ll be prepared. So start backing up your computer today and save yourself a lot of headaches downs the road.
