At The Computer Guys LLC we are constantly reviewing new technologies that will help you deal with all the technology stuff that is invading your life!  Yes, we use the word “invading” because at times all this stuff seems so intrusive.  This month’s e-newsletter has several things for helping you cope with all the tech stuff in your life.


Backup of Data Files


What is it?  Why do it?  Who cares?


Backing up your data files sounds like something for network administrators or business managers.  Well, guess what?  It is for everyone these days.  Seriously!  Let us ask you a few questions:


Do you store pictures from your digital camera on your PC?

Do you store home movies made with your digital camcorder on your PC?

Do you store legally downloaded music or videos on your PC?

Do you store word processing or spreadsheets (Word or Excel) files on your PC?

Do you store all those inspirational Power Point shows your friends send you?

Do you store your email address book on your PC?  What about all your “Favorites” in Internet Explorer?


If you answered “YES” to any combination of the above, then answer this next question?


If something happened to your PC where you could not recover the data, i.e. fire, lightning, theft, hardware breakdown etc., how would you restore the data without a backup?


If you do make backups, do you store them in the same location as your PC?  This is a big no-no.  Backups should ideally be stored off-site or at least at the other end of the house from your PC.


There are many methods for dealing with this but this month we’ll cover just one of the newest technologies or methods for backing up your data off-site and guess what?  It doesn’t cost you a dime!

One thought on “Backup of Data Files

  1. Just this past week we’ve been working on a project that was an attempt to recover data for a professional office.  This data is considered extremely important to the business and they did not have a backup.
    Please….for your sanity and your financial security, backup all critical data.
