Two simple words: Back Up and how many of us really heed this advice?
Everyone should regularly back up their computer's data. The various problems that could lead to lost data are malware, software bugs, user error, theft, fire, flood.
Data backup and recovery have two distinguishable purposes. The first purpose is to recover data as a reaction to data loss. Data loss is a common experience of computer users.
About 67% of internet users suffer from a serious data loss. The secondary purpose of backup and recovery is to recover data from a historical period of time, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data may be required.
As more and more go online and there seems to be more and more data being stored in terms of documents, photos, music, works projects, schools projects etc. The risk of data loss is compounded from a personal or business stand point.
We seem to take it for granted that the data is always there until there is an accident and then its too late.
It requries you to have a strategic plan which is on auto pilot that you dont have to think about.
Having a cloud back up system simplifies that problem where you have access of the data from any location and the risk is minimized in terms of local or physical damages which was not expected.
