Why should you backup your data?
As more and more of us adopt a paperless environment, the result is that more and more important documents are held on laptops and desktops. Have you ever thought how much losing your hardware or data would affect you? For some this would be frustrating, for others devastating. Especially in business.
The primary purpose of a backup is to enable you to recover data after it’s been lost, deleted or corrupted, however another benefit is that it enables you to recover data from an earlier time.
Information or data on your computer could be lost, if:
- The hard drive in your computer fails
- The data on your computer is corrupted for a variety of reasons
- Your computer is lost or stolen
- Your computer is in a fire or other environmental event
- A virus infects your computer and deletes or corrupts your files
What should be backed up?
The price you will pay for backing up your data, will depend on the size of the files that you wish to back up. You should as a minimum backup any information that is critical or irreplaceable to you. Consider not only the documents folders where you store the files you create, but also your Web browser bookmarks, contacts databases, and files stored on your desktop.
- Students should consider making a daily back up of assignments they are working on.
- Businesses should back up copies of files they are creating as they work on them.
Although it’s not always appropriate to back up copies of programs you’ve installed, you should always keep hold of the installation disks or files to enable you to reinstall programs that you own.
