You’ve probably heard this before, but it never been more true. You have to back up (“save”) your work, or one day, when you expect it least, you will lose it. Your PC’s hard drive is the most important component of your PC and is that which is sometimes most vulnerable to attack. Making backups of your most important files and storing them apart from the computer is the best defense against losing that data forever. There are many ways of performing backups. You just need to find a system that saves the information you need and is easy enough that you’ll get into the habit of actually doing it regularly.
Many AnswerSmart™ clients find that burning files to CD or DVD is the most efficient way to back up their data. If your PC is equipped with a CD or DVD burner, just burn your vital files to disc, and then store those discs somewhere safe. Be sure to use name-brand media: Some low-quality discs lose data integrity quite quickly.
For smaller amounts of data, a floppy disk or USB (Universal Serial Bus) pen drive can be enough to archive vital files. Another option is to use the AnswerSmart™ Data-Backup service. Please give us a call at 877-883-TECH (8324) and we can help you to choose the best data back up service for you.
