Why are backups important?
Viruses. When a virus infects your computer and you have not backed up your data, there is a high likelihood that you will lose your data.
Accidental operations. When working with databases, there is always a risk to perform destructive queries (UPDATE, DELETE, INSERT, etc.) by mistake. In this situation, you can restore your database from a backup copy.
System crashes. You are using hardware and software that can fail, so backing up your computer will help you save important information. We recommend making cloud backups to have additional source for data restoring.
Theft. People rarely think about theft when considering data backup. If you think that computer theft is a rare phenomenon, check out the statistics. According to a 2001 report from Computer Security Institute and the FBI, 591,000 laptops were stolen in the U.S. that year alone. If you don’t want to lose important files, consider backing them up in advance.
How often should you backup your computer?
The answer depends on how crucial your data is. Everyone should back up computer files at least once a week, but if you are running a business, you should consider backing up your computer files every day. Doing this you will ensure that your files are always up to date, and if a crash or a theft does happen, you will not lose important data.
