Will you SCREAM if you lost the past 5 years BAS records, the report for that big client.. AND your firstborn’s baby photos?
Calm down Drama Queen. If you implement SIT’s special back up solution, you might even be able to smile next time your PC crashes. Yep, for real, no pain in the backside calling around looking the specs you sneaked from your old work… or the ATO sending those letters with ‘OVERDUE’ in red ink… and your BOSS / PARTNER /SPOUSE blaming you every time they need one of the lost files for the next 3 years.
Is it Monday? (Or any business day). YES: Great, Call 3366-6964 and ask about the best back up plan for your needs, tell us what you’re currently doing (or NOT doing), so WHEN (not if, let’s face it, sooner or later it’s gonna happen) virus infects, hard drive fails, you spill wine whilst browsing Facebook, your niece cracks the screen after dropping your laptop… or the next bushfire or flood damns the bloody thing “not economical to repair”…. you have a bit of a pain waiting for a quote and deciding if to repair or what new one to buy (we can tell you what is good though to short cut the process)… but there’s NO PANIC about your data…
With SIT’s special back up drives, you know that even if the power surge zapped the USB on the back up, we can remove it from the case and read it from a drive reader… UNLIKE most back up drives from a big retail chain.
External Hard drive
Even if you are storing online, it is recommended you set a time (weekly to monthly for busines, quarterly for personal) to back up your Documents, emails, photos, videos, desktop settings and any other software storage files.
Cloud back up
Backing up to the “cloud” means that your data is stored at the storage company’s server and you can retrieve your data when you log on, when connected to the internet. A storage company may offer a certain amount of free storage space and then charge for larger amounts (measured in Gb gigabytes).
An example of cloud storage is:
- Google Drive
Recently, SasS (Software as a Service) companies have become very popular and offer services like accounting packages on a subscription basis and store your files on their server (so you don’t need to worry, only log on with your password). Saunders IT recommend you also keep a physical back up of any important data as even very big companies like Apple can have failure in their systems and you can lose files.
