IT'S  THAT  TIME  AGAIN...!!!

So 2017 has come to an end and for some it was a good year.  On the other hand, some people are glad to file it away and begin the New Year.  Either way, what a better time to back up your digital files from 2017 and put them away for safe keeping.  I’m sure many of you have not backed up your desktop, laptop or phone files in a long time, if ever.  It’s just our nature in the fast-paced world in which we live.  But where would you be without all of the photos you’ve taken this year, the documents you’ve created, or the correspondence from your business and/or friends?  Some of these things are priceless and/or irreplaceable.

Let’s try to keep this simple. There are many, many ways to backup your devices and a good techie knows that.  Most of the Android phones today are capable of holding extra storage cards in them which can vary in storage capacity.  This would make it easy to backup your photos and contacts for example.  Other methods may be hooking up your phone directly to your computer or simply using your Bluetooth feature to transfer the information from one to the other if you have that capability in both devices.  And finally, there’s Cloud Storage.   Using Cloud Storage, in simple terms, involves backing up your files over a network to a digital storage room of sorts.  You can easily search the internet for a more technical understanding if you wish. 

As for backing up your laptop, tablet or desktop, the methods described above work about the same. You can back up these devices to some type of storage medium like a flash drive or DVD that you can put away for safe keeping.  Additionally, you can backup to external storage drives hooked directly to your computer, or a network storage drive connected within your network.  NAS (Network Area Storage) gives you the advantage of connecting multiple computers within a network to the same storage drive.  This might be a great idea for small businesses.  Cloud Storage is also available for these devices as well.  Websites such as Carbonite or iDrive are good examples.

Whichever method you decide to use, be consistent.  Backup daily, weekly or even monthly depending on your needs.  And storing files off-site, such as in a Cloud, may be a good idea in case of natural disasters.  Take the time to do this sooner rather than later.  Better to spend 30 minutes backing up today, then spending hours, days, or even weeks reconstructing or recovering files tomorrow.
