Backup for Home Users

Backup – Protect yourself!
Your personal data is at risk from issues such as a hard drive failure, disasters such as fire, and threats like ransomware. We can help you create a backup strategy to keep your data safe. An external hard drive is recommended as a local on-site backup method.  Even with a good local backup strategy, we strongly recommend that you keep an offsite copy of important data. You can physically store your data in a safe deposit box, or at a trusted friend’s or relative’s home. Better yet, cloud backup services give you another layer of protection that help avoid the possibility of a local backup failure, fire, theft or other disaster.


As long as you have access to high-speed Internet, online backup services offer an excellent option for continuous backup. Your data is stored securely and multiple versions of your files are maintained whenever changes are made. This provides additional protection should your system become infected with ransomware.


If you are looking for an affordable and reliable cloud backup service, I use iDrive for my data, as well as for many of my customers.


iDrive Cloud Backup


Remember, backup should always consist of multiple copies of your important data, using multiple backup methods. Never rely on only one copy as a backup!


Hard Drive, Flash Drive, Digital Camera, and CD/DVD Data Recovery
We can recover data from digital camera media cards, USB ‘flash drives’ or ‘thumb drives’, hard disk drives, and CD or DVD media. If you have photos or documents that you think are lost, and the device has not been physically damaged, we may be able to recover them! If you have accidentally deleted a photo from your camera’s memory card, or lost the entire contents of a memory card, it is possible to recover those photos! Don’t lose those one of a kind pictures or important documents!
