Take It To The Cloud
You probably use your computer to store Office Documents, PowerPointís, Pictures and other files that really arenít that large. Backing up all that data is crucial, but your computer is not always a good place to store the data. You could use other storage, (external hard drives, flash drives or cdís), but they may not always be available when you are away from home or office. For this and many other reasons I suggest using the cloud for backup and storage of your files.
TIP: On the internet there are companies that use storage servers that let you store and retrieve your files via the internet. This storage is referred to as the Cloud.
There are a lot of benefits to using this service. You can retrieve any of your files from any computer connected to the internet. You can share files if you wish or upload new files and if your computer crashes you have instant backup.
Most cloud servers save your files on multiple servers in multiple locations in case a server crashes or some other disaster. Many of the companies encrypt the information so that the employees of the cloud company can never know the contents of your files.
At last count there are 180+ companies offering Cloud service. Microsoft offers 25 GBís of Cloud storage for free while other companies offer this service for a fee depending on the size of the storage.
NOTE: For the free 25 GB of storage from Microsoft go to the URL below, establish an account and start using a secure backup on the Cloud for free.
