What’s all this Data Backup Hype about?
Do you store all your precious personal data on your computer MAC or PC without a viable backup? If yes then please read on. Yikes, dipity do, you read on! It’s simple “DON’T take the risk” I’ll tell you why. 65% of computer users don’t backup their important data Photos, Pictures, Contacts, Files, Emails, company documents, templates & so on. 6% of the same group of users lose their data every year. 1 of all computer users have experienced data loss at least once. If this has happened to you “My Sympaties” if it hasn’t how would you be if in an instant you lost all your computer stored data?
Data loss results in a hugely time consuming and expensive process and often victims are left heartbroken, it’s no wonder that ` of companies that lose their data close down within 6 months after a data loss incident. This is a big problem and it is because we as users do not anticipate the possibility that this could happen to us and how much it could really affect us.
There are certain “Jokers” which can be life savers and worth a try such as data recovery software but this often needs to be done by a technician and can be very difficult depending the way your data was lost. Also data recovery centres can even recover data off dead or burnt hard drives but are often very costly. So to rely on options like this is clearly not a solution but maybe worth a try to the unlucky chance taker but the real nab is a complete backup solution is not very expensive and often cheaper than a good recovery program.
My backup solution works like this I purchased a 320gb portable hard drive and loaded Dmailer Backup onto the drive from this drive I have backed up 4 computers my lovely Wife’s MAC, my home pc, my work laptop and my sons college laptop (which I’m trying to educate my kids to understand the importance off). All I have to do is connect the portable drive to any of the computer and there data is automatically backed up and encrypted with no scheduling or hassle and for extra security you have the options to upload your data to a secure online server. This solution cost me $99.93 USD which comes to $24.98 USD per computer. There are hundreds of other solutions like this but I chose this one because it’s cheap, easy and I can carry the data with me when I need (not like a tape drive). This solution may not be best for you I can see that this solution would not be appropriate for a company or large environment.
Why would you take the risk, the world is evolving don’t stay in the dark!
