The importance of backing up
Let’s face it, you may have a great computer or external hard drive, but one day they’re going to wear out and you may lose your data. That’s just the nature of any piece of hardware. Your local computer repair person might be able to rescue your data, but then again, maybe not. That’s the gamble you take if you don’t backup your data.
Worse, the Internet harbors many potential threats to your data. Things like viruses and Trojans don’t just steal your data. In some cases, they erase it.
There’s also the threat of ransomware. That’s when a hacker puts a virus on your computer that encrypts your data, making it useless. You may have to pay a ransom in order for the hacker to unencrypt your data, with no guarantee that he or she will do so. If you have a current backup of your data, this is less of a worry. You can just wipe your hard drive and restore it to your latest backup.
How to backup your data
There are a lot of ways to back up your data. Each way has its own procedure. Still, here are some general guidelines when it comes to making a good backup.
Data backup options
There are plenty of options to back up your data. It’s smart to understand the types of backup and get one that suits your need.
External hard drives
As the name sounds, an external hard drive is connected to the computer on the outside via cables or wirelessly. Examples of external hard drives include USB flash drives and solid state drives, also known as SSDs. External hard drives have some advantages. They’re portable, easy to use, and capable of storing large files. Plus, they can be moved from computer to computer, making it convenient to transport data.
Cloud backup allows users to back up their data to hardware that’s in a remote location. Users can access their data anytime on any device via the internet.
Cloud storage makes it easy to manage your data. Most cloud storage services provide a large amount of storage space and encrypt the content for data security.
Flash drives are small portable storage devices mostly used to transfer files from device to device. They’re also called pen drives, thumb drives, or jump drives.
Most services offer encryption and protect the data from loss caused by technological malfunction or cybercrime.
Online backup service is a method of data backup and storage in which a service provider handles the stored data. A backup service can help people and companies manage their data better.
Unlike cloud storage, flash drives do not come with a large storage capacity and do not have additional security features should your drive be lost or stolen.
What’s the best data backup solution?
The best data backup solution is the one that best suits your needs. A lot depends on the kind of data you’re protecting. Cybercriminals can use seemingly unimportant data and patch it together to commit identity theft. A strong backup strategy can make a big difference in your digital life and give you peace of mind.
Here are few things to look for in a backup system.
Do I need multiple backups?
Laptops crash. Phones break. The “blue screen of death” appears.
There are a lot of reasons to back up your personal data. And it’s a good idea to do it in more than one place. If you’re looking for easy access to your files when you don’t have an internet connection, you can store data in a removable device like an external hard drive. If you’re looking for online backup, having a cloud storage strategy can be an effective solution.
The chances of losing all of your data, say, in a disaster aren’t great, but it’s never a bad idea to take precautions should the unthinkable happen. Think of data backup as one of those better-safe-than-sorry precautions. It’s relatively inexpensive and it doesn’t take much time. The cost of going without could be a lot greater.
