Don’t Lose Your Data: Top Reasons to Back Up Your Files Now
It can be painful to lose your hard work, especially when you know it could have been prevented.
Photos can mean a lot. They help people reflect on trips and time they’ve spent with family and friends, but if you don’t store them properly you could lose them forever.
That’s exactly what happened to me. My dad and I took a cross-continent road trip from Florida to Vancouver, hitting up all the sights along the way.
We saw the swamps of Louisiana, the plains of Dallas, the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the mountains of Wyoming. Along with these epic sights came some equally epic photos.
Later in the trip, I left my phone with all of my photos on top of my car and drove off, both never to be seen again.
To lose my phone was bad enough, but the device itself was replaceable. The photos, however, were not. This all could have been avoided had I simply backed up my phone and data. Here are a few more reasons why you should back up your data now.
Save hours of redoing work
For me, it was photos I lost, but for your business it could mean countless hours of work that you lose. Backing up your data saves important files and documents that would otherwise be lost if your system goes down or your hard drive crashes.
Think of the frustration you and your employees would experience if you have to go back and refile all the same work. This would cost both time and money that could be better spent on securing new clients or projects.
Make finding files easier
Can’t remember where that file was placed? With backed up data, it’s simple to search a server to find records from as far back as you’ve backed up. Think how much happier everyone will be when you need to reference previous documents.
On top of being easier to find, the files are remotely accessible from anywhere. Forget an important file on your computer at work? That’s not an issue when everything is saved and backed up to a drive. That way, all of the files are in one place, accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Keep your information safe
It’s human nature to lose and misplace things, so it’s only a matter of time before you or one of your employees loses a phone, laptop, or document with potentially valuable information. With your data backed up, misplacing critical files will have a much smaller impact.
