Keeping a current backup is vital for your business.
Without it, you could easily lose critical data and cause serious problems resulting in a loss of revenue. Many people take unnecessary risks with the safety of their information.
The most common false assumption people often make is that they don’t need to back-up because they have a relatively new computer or laptop. Although new hardware is statistically less likely to fail, hard drives are notoriously unpredictable.
Some people rely on USB flash memory sticks to save their work. These are good because they are far more robust than traditional hard drives as they don’t have any moving parts inside to dislodge. However, flash memory has a limited lifespan and the data it contains can only be overwritten a certain number of times before it will eventually fail just like a solid state drive. Because of their small size they are also extremely easy to lose.
It requires very little effort on your part to keep accurate backups, especially if you choose to back-up to the ‘cloud’ like WinWeb customers do. All this involves is uploading the latest version of your files to your account as soon as you finish working on it. You then have a permanent copy of that file that you can instantly access from anywhere in the world.
