Sometimes losing your data can be quite frustrating. Family pictures, business files. So how to avoid such loss?
First of all, you need a backup system. Either do it manually, by just plugging in an additional hard drive and transfer files once in a while, or have an automated system that regularly copies your drive to a backup.
Even cloud based backup or network assisted one exist. These enable you to also have access to all your data when you are on the go, so they may be worth considering.
When you are considering backing up your data, the answer should always be: YES!
Paying for data recovery means that you are going to pay over a thousand dollars just to recover data. SO it is wise to think ahead and connect your computer to a data backup device.
