Taxes, Dentist, Insurance…and Back-up
Ok…nobody really wants to have to think about backing up files and data and computers…let alone read about it. But hey…you know what they say about an ounce of prevention. It goes double for digital storage. If you consider the amount of time, energy and resources that go into the work represented by your digital assets and data systems, not having a solid back-up plan is like spending your life working to purchase artwork for your home and then walking away each day with the door unlocked (or wide open! Or in some cases, with a “free stuff” sign no the lawn!)
So…like taxes or the dentist or insurance…digital backup is just one of those things you have to do. It’s worth it for the sake of your personal information. For a business, it’s that much more important. Especially if you want to take advantage of all the great new cloud technology and interconnectivity features out there.
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, nor does it have to take much of your time once the system is set up.
