It’s amazing how many people who come in with failed hard drives and NO DATA BACKUPS! At least every few weeks we’re forced to tell someone that their pictures or documents are gone unless we send the drive out for recovery. Data recovery tends to be quite expensive with prices ranging from $300 to $1200. It’s critical to make backups of your data. All hard drives and storage media will fail eventually, often because of accidental damage.
The solution? Get an external hard drive and download the free version of Syncback from 2brightsparks.com. Once configured it will do your backups automatically. Simple and automated is good.
Considering the cost of data recovery, a backup solution is cheap insurance and peace of mind. Inquire about external hard drives, available in sizes from 500gb to 2tb.
