Often the information we save on our computers is worth infinitely more than the computer itself. Hardware failures are an unfortunate fact of life, and so are viruses and hackers that damage data or even hold it for ransom. This is why it is so important to have a current backup of anything that is important to you.
We partner with several data backup services that we recommend who can make backing up your computer quick and easy. Carbonite is our favorite for home users. We can also do manual backups either to a USB device like a flash drive or external hard drive, or we can transfer your data to another computer. If you’d like, we can even design a custom backup solution for your needs. Just call or stop by for more info.
