Backups (two copies is the rule)

      No Comments on Backups (two copies is the rule)

“Data that you don’t have at least two copies of is data you don’t care about.”

Got a phone full of pictures and videos? What happens if the phone dies or gets full? What about your computer? All those memories are just sitting there, and most people seem to think they’ll just stay there forever. Guess what? They won’t. Hard drives fail. Phones die or get dropped. Once it happens, it’s too late to worry about what was on there. It’s gone. Even if you might get it back, it will cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars to even try, and I don’t know anyone that can afford that. I’ve had too many customers lose important information and memories because they simply didn’t take the proper precautions.

There are lots of ways to keep your data safe, and depending on your needs, they may be free! Cloud services like OneDrive, DropBox and many others offer a limited amount of space at no charge. For many people, it’s enough. For larger amounts of data, a small cost per month might be necessary. 

Manual backups on thumb drives or CDs/DVDs (outdated) is time consuming and painful. Cloud services are automatic and can take care of your computers and phones with no problem. Even an external hard drive can be set up to do automatic backups. Cloud services are still better because you can access your files anytime from anywhere.
