How to set up a simple backup system

  1. 1. How to Set Up a Simple Backup System SafeBytes Software
  2. 2. Backing up is never optional when you are using a computer because any failure in the software, hardware or power line could mean that you lose significant amounts of data. Although, programs like TotalSystemCare can help you manage the various parts of the computer in relation to protection from threats, you need a separate backup protocol. The process is surprisingly simple. In the first instance you can purchase an online storage repository for as little as $50. The best providers at the moment include iDrive, Carbonite, Mozy, Google Drive, iCloud and SkyDrive. The key is to select the one that is able to support the majority, if not all of your devices and peripherals. They will give you a downloadable app that also acts as a gateway to the storage. It creates a mirror that you can access at will so that you are not totally reliant on the localized drives for storage. So far SkyDrive has received the most positive reviews. The downside is that you have to have sufficient upstream bandwidth in order to handle all the critical data files.
  3. 3. Other methods and approaches to backing up The second major approach is to consolidate the data from the mobile devices onto a primary computer which is kept in a relatively secure place. In order to do this, you have to purchase a driver that is fast and has the capacity in order to scan the files. Make sure that it goes through SafeBytes just to ensure that it does not contain any type malware. If you can get two of them then it is even better for you in the long run. Windows sometimes provides a built-in app for this purpose. In Windows 7 it is known as the file recovery tool. For Windows 8 you should look for the File History tool. In this way, you can create a system image as well as a recovery flash drive or CD. In the event you will use Windows Backup in order to have a secondary storage facility for you data. This can be configured to happen at various frequencies including daily, weekly and monthly. Alternatively, you may create the backups to an online service if that is what is practical for you needs at the time.
  4. 4. A combination of the two methods mentioned above is likely to give you 99% protection and is usually sufficient for most personal computers. Another point you need to take into consideration is the fact that local backs restore more quickly than those which are done online. Even when you are online, there are vulnerabilities to the extent that you will be effectively leaving your backup plans to the whims of a third party. This could expose you to certain forms of malware such as a virus that is transmitted in such a way. Nevertheless, there are some people for whom the methods described above are not sufficient in terms of the volume that they can hold and the security of the information that is being backed up. In those instances it is possible to come up with a bespoke plan that may cost considerably more but also has the advantage of being suited to the stated needs of the client.
