Securing Important Data

In this day and age, our personal data is our most important asset. We have documents, financial information, photos and other difficult to reproduce information that all make up our valuable content on our hard drives. The most important step to ensure your data is always safe is to perform frequent backups of your data. You may backup your data locally on an external hard drive; however, I recommend a cloud backup solution to ensure no failure. I recommend both Western Digital and Seagate Hard Drives for local backup. The Western Digital My Passport External USB 3.0 Hard Drive is a great choice, as is the Seagate Backup Plus 1 TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive. They will both allow you to backup and access your data locally.

Other options include online backup systems such as mozy, dropbox or our own cloud backup service, flash drives, tape drives and even network-based storage. I recommend all home users to use a cloud backup service in case their local backup is lost, stolen or destroyed.

Online storage and backup solutions are not as fast as local storage; however, they are safer due to them being backed up in a separate location.

DFW Nerd Herd can assist you with all of your backup storage needs and insure you are never in a costly position in which your data cannot be recovered.
