Trust me data loss is real!! There are times when people lose data due to hardware failure and honestly it makes me what to cry because there’s no reason to lose all your data. Computer components break down all the time. They’re not designed to last forever. Unfortunately, many people don’t take the time to back up data stored on their computers. Seriously, can you imagine losing all your photos, music, email contacts, emails, videos of your family, tax and business documents all in a days time? Here’s a 1 minute tutorial on how to back up your data to a external hard drive or flash drive. I recommend buying an external hard drive in a 500 GB to 1TB in size. This is a good size for the average home user and you’ll have plenty of room to add more data over the years. They run anywhere from $60-$120 depending on the size, brand, sales. They can be purchased at Target, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Office Max, Office Depot, etc. The piece of mind is worth the cost a 1000 x’s over!
