Why Data Backup Matters

A life lived to the fullest generates thousands of photos, videos, documents, and irreplaceable moments. As the technology we use continues to grow more powerful, we’re creating more and more data that we’d be devastated to lose.

Computers crash, wind up in the wrong hands, or drowned in floods—natural or plumbing-induced. Keep your memories safe with proper backups.

Getting Started:
All You Need is a Basic Backup Plan

Data backup means protecting your photos, videos, music, and documents. Storing in the cloud doesn’t always guarantee your files are safe. Often the cloud fails. So what do you do when you lose connection? Is your data gone forever?

Not if you set up a quick plan. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, or expensive, or cause headaches. Using basic data backup techniques will put your mind at rest and save you a whole lot of time.

Understanding Personal Data Protection

A life lived to the fullest generates thousands of photos, videos, documents, and irreplaceable moments. As the technology we use continues to grow more powerful, we’re creating more and more data that we’d be devastated to lose.

To protect these moments against wildfires and other disasters, make sure your hard drives are backup-ready, disaster-ready, and bundled with a Data Recovery Service (DRS).
