Why Backing up Your Data is Vital

Posted on May 12th, 2015

Given how much data the average person has on their computer nowadays, it’s very surprising how few people will actually back it up. Computers are very complex devices and just like anything else, they’re prone to developing faults as they age. With hard drive failures, it’s very possible that you could lose all the data on your computer.

If you think about what files you have on your computer right now and how you’d feel if they were lost for good, then you’ll probably realise just how important backing up your data is.

When it comes to backing up data, many people will use physical storage devices such as USB drives or external hard drives. Whilst this might seem like a good idea, the truth is that these devices can easily get lost, damaged or fall into the wrong hands. Due to these risks, more and more people are now using cloud technology to backup their important files.

The benefits of using the cloud to backup your data

Using the cloud to backup your data comes with several key benefits. These include –

  • Access from any device at any time – This is an incredibly useful benefit of using the cloud to backup data. If your computer breaks down, then you can simply log into your account from another device and access your files at any time.
  • Completely secure – Because your data is copied to multiple data centres, it means that even if one centre fails, you’ll be able to access your files from another, which completely alleviates the worry of your files being lost.
  • No extra hardware of software required – When using the cloud to backup your data, you don’t need to purchase any additional equipment. All your files are simply uploaded to a secure server where they can be accessed instantly.
