Backup Guidelines

Backup of your information and why it is important

- To have multiple copies of your important data stored on remote locations is the best way to keep it safe if anything had to go wrong.

- There are a number of ways for data to be lost, here are some of the most common reasons: 

* Viruses:

Malicious software can corrupt and destroy your personal files

* Hard Disk Failures:

Hard Drives can crash at anytime without warning and without backups there is no guarantee to recover your data

* Theft:

If your laptop/computer is stolen and not recovered you would have lost all of your valuable data.
