Although data recovery is still possible after the death of a hard drive, it is still expensive and extremely time consuming. The best course of action for anyone is to have their data backed up on a consistent basis. There are a few ways this can be done:
- Back up your files manually onto an external hard drive
- Use an automatic backup program that will back your files to an external drive for you
- Remote Backup, Also known as “Cloud Storage”
All of these are great ways to ensure that your data will be safe, but are not necessarily easy to set up for everyone. Give Upper Valley Computer a call, and we will be more than happy to not only help you choose the right backup solution, but we can set it up for you too!
