									Backup Data on your Laptop
Author: John Ugoshowa
If you were to look at past statistics regarding the information that has been lost in regards to laptop computers, you would find yourself
amazed. Even though this information can be astounding, many of us still don’t take the time to back up the information on our
laptops.

To put it in simple terms, nothing in the computer industry is fool proof. Hard drives can crash, the laptop can get stolen, or it can even be
dropped and rendered useless. To ensure that we are never left without our precious data, we should always create a backup of our
information.

There is no mistaken the fact that over a million laptops have been stolen over the years in the United States alone. Anytime a laptop is
stolen, chances are that it won’t be recovered. If the information wasn’t backed up, then the owner will be left with no laptop - but
more importantly - no backed up data either.

                                                                                                             ou
Just like you can with desktop computers, you can also create a backup of the data on your laptop as well. Y can use online services,
back it up remotely, or use several other methods to ensure that you keep all of your data. Preserving your data is something you should
really look into, especially if you have business material on your laptop.

The best way to go about backing up your data and files is to burn them to a data CD. Data CDs can hold up to 700 MB (Mega Bytes) of
data, which means a lot of files. To back things up this way, all you need is a CD/RW burner in your laptop, which most of the newer ones
come with.

The only drawback to laptops is the fact that they don’t offer near as much storage or security measures as a desktop PC. Desktop
computers have a lot more power, and they can also do things (including backups) in a fraction of the time.

The laptop computer was designed for on the go use, which is the main reason why people don’t really think about backing up their
data. When the thought finally does come to mind, it is normally too late to do anything about it.

As mentioned above, the easiest and quickest way to backup your laptop data is to use an online backup service. Depending on your
connection to the Internet, it can take anywhere from several minutes to several hours. Although it may take you a little bit of time,
you’ll have the satisfaction in knowing that your data is there if something should happen.

                                                                                                      ou
Whether it’s for your business or personal use, you can’t go wrong backing up your data. Y should always create a backup of
your data at least once a month, even more than that if you have a lot of important information that you add to your laptop on a frequent
basis.
