External Data Backup

Although keeping data on your computer locally is completely fine, it is highly recommended that you also back up this important information to an alternate external source, such as an SC card, USB drive, or even an external hard drive. Depending upon your exact needs, different types may work best. If you want to backup your entire hard drive, an external hard drive with quite a bit of space will most likely be required. If it is a smaller amount of data something such as an SD card or USB stick would be fine.

Cloud Data Backup

Another wonderful way to backup data is a cloud service such as Google Drive, DropBox, etc. Many of them have free options where you can get 1-5GB of storage space for your files. In the event you need even more storage, they offer various packages that can increase your storage space at a reasonable cost. At Chipheads Computer Repair, we recommend implementing both, this way if your local files and external backup are not accessible they will be backed up to the cloud as well.
