So long, farewell, au revoir, Auf wiedersehen, goodbye hardrives, hello online storage!
The days of external hard drives, USB sticks and floppy discs are long gone. Online storage is the future of file safety in the 21st century and here is why.
Online storage protects your files in a way that its predecessors could only dream of. By storing copies of your files on remote servers, well away from your PC or Laptop means that not only do you have a secure copy of your files if some tragedy were to befall your PC but also if tragedy were to strike your location. Natural disasters can generate untold damage. Whilst storing your files on a remote server won’t rebuild your house, it will allow you access to your house insurance documentation, your inventory of belongings and all the pictures you have of family holidays and Christmases. Whilst homes can be rebuilt, you can’t get back photographs or videos of special memories if the only copy you have is on your PC or Laptop.
As well as protecting your data from natural disasters, it can also prevent them from falling foul of human ones too. Laptops are a prime example of equipment which can be the victim of human incompetence. We can drop them, spill stuff on them, leave them on trains or press delete when we weren’t meant to, all errors which can result in data loss. By using an online storage provider you can keep an up to date copy of all your files incase one of these things were to happen. Full and partial restorations can be made or you can simply access the singular file, you didn’t mean to delete.
Without a doubt online file storage is the future of pc backup. It is no wonder we are waving goodbye to more traditional methods and opening up ourselves to a much more secure, digital age.
