Doing More Than Just Backing Up Your Computer Files


As a business owner in this day and age, most likely you have a computer that you use for some aspect of your business.

Something that is critical is to make sure you regularly and consistently do back-ups of your computer files. This is something I discuss in more detail in The Importance Of Backing Up Your Data Effectively and Backing Up Your Emails.

This is something I’m on top of … my backups and their security is a very high priority for me.

However last week I encountered a situation I’ve not been in before and discovered that I could do this even more effectively.

    Hi DM, Great to hear you fared better that your laptop and car.
    Fortunately my dead PC was before starting my online business, lightning strike close to home fried it (also knocked out the phone and lines about 750m from home). That taught me to back-up everything (but I do it manually)… your suggestion of online backup sounds like a better method. Will investigate.
    Thanks, keep well

    Thank you Kim,

    I have so much more I want to share at the moment but with everyone being so busy leading up to the Christmas festivities I’m saving it all for the New Year.
