What is data insurance?
Picture this; your computer suddenly refuses to turn on. Would you miss any of the photos, music or documents that are stored on it?
If the very thought of this fills you with terror then you most likely do not have Data Insurance.
OK, so back to my question, what is data insurance? Data Insurance is Data Backup
Just like insurance on your home gives you piece of mind should anything happen to your home, Data Backup gives you piece of mind should anything happen to the computer that contains all of your precious photos and documents.
Ok, enough with the scare tactics.
What do I do about it?
Ah, I’m glad you asked. That’s easy and, free.
There are a number of services that will automatically store your data on their servers. Once set up you no longer have to worry about what happens, if the worst happens.
Click on any of the links below and read up on what each service has to offer. They are all essentially the same so it doesn’t really matter which service you choose.
Once you have decided on one the next steps are basically;
- Download the application – each service has a download link for its application
- Install the application – this will create a folder on your computer that is copied to the service’s servers
- Sign up for an account – during the installation process you will be asked to sign up with the service
- Sign in with your new account and copy all of your important data into the newly created folder
An added bonus is that these services all have Apps that can be installed on your smart phone or tablet so that you can access your data on them as well.
