We all own a ton of data these days and have a variety of methods for storing it in the home. We’re all familiar with writing our data to CD’s, DVD’s, flash pens and external hard drives, aren’t we? Of course, though, sometimes we forget to backup all of our important data to our external devices for one reason or another…mainly because manual data storage is a tedious task! And as a result of this, our computer’s files are often at risk, whether it be our online bank statements, important documents, or media such as videos, music and photos. In fact, even our CD’s and DVD’s, etc, may be at risk.
Let’s have a look at the reasons why:
- Loss and theft – We have a tendency to lose things. And that includes notebooks and small storage devices. If your house were to be burgled, lightweight items such as these are usually the first things thieves will grab
- House fire – Another one of those things you never think will happen to you. But when it does, and all of your precious data was stored inside, how do you get it back…?
- Natural disasters – These forces of nature can destroy houses—and data—in a matter of seconds…
- Children – Adults often panic when they notice these small people lurking around their computers or other devices. There is a horrible link between spillages and those with less than six years under their belts…
Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about any of these disasters. Computers will always break, and be lost and stolen. Fact.
But one thing we can all do is backup our files with online data storage.
Online data storage backs up files to its heavily encrypted dedicated servers automatically which protect them in the event of a disaster hitting your computer, and offer an instant recovery from anywhere in the world.
