I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating, and with emphasis this time. I’m only being emphatic because I care. I hate to see people lose their data. If you have a computer, having a backup data plan is not an option, is not a nice thing to have, it’s a MUST.
There are data corruption issues, physical failures for the main storage device in your computer(s), and in more recent times, specialized types of malware that will encrypt your data – and if you don’t have a data backup plan in place, even if the infection is removed, you can kiss your data good-bye.
It only takes one encounter with one of those specialized type of malware to fall victim of its nasty business.
Don’t be a statistic. If you don’t have one in place, implement a data backup plan, ASAP. This is a very opportune time of the year, since you can add it to your recent new year’s resolutions and then get it done. 🙂
If you have any questions on the subject, don’t hesitate to ask.
