Why Should I Back-Up Files?
Backing up files simply means making copies of the files in a separate location so that they can be restored if something happens to the computer, or if they are deleted accidentally.
What would happen if your hard disk stops working? Have you got copies of your important files? How much time would you lose if your essential files and emails were damaged or went missing? When computer files contain information that is extremely important, a back-up process is used to protect against disasters that might destroy the files.
If you do not have a backup system in place, which you regularly use, you leave yourself open to great risk of losing data. Your time is valuable.
Replacing lost files may be very costly and time consuming, or even impossible.
Spend some time making a list of files that you can't afford to lose. Take the time to organize a backup system for the files that you are responsible for, and use it regularly. Don't put this off, do it now!
