Backups should be stored in 3 different places.
- Your computer
- The cloud
- An external DETACHED drive
Computers store some of our most prized possessions and information. Could be a thesis, a book, photos, videos, important business information and emails. But like anything, a computer can fail. A power surge, a faulty harddrive, some random thing happening or someone or something could attack you. Viruses, malware, spyware and ransomware infections are more common than colds. We are constantly bombarded by emails telling us to click on this link or that image or open this document and they are potential virus or malware threats that can affect your computer. Opening just one of these has the potential for corrupting your information or encrypting it so that you cannot access it unless you pay someone a ransom fee to get access back to your information.
Here is where we can help. We can establish a proper backup routine so your information is in 3 places so if you do get hit or if your computer gets stolen or if your house or office burns down, your information is secure.
