How to avoid losing your precious data

Has this ever happened to you? It's a hot Summer's day and you decide to take a dip in the pool, and oh-no, your phone was in your pocket! All of your pictures and emails and contacts – lost in an instant. Well don't let that happen to you. A regularly scheduled backup on your tablet, phone or computer can help ensure that your precious data isn't lost in an accident.

A terrible storm rolls in, it rains for days and flood water damages your basement where your computer is. Thankfully with a backup your data can be safe, no matter how bad the weather gets. A GroovyTek trainer can help make sure that your data is safe and that you're ready for anything – but what do you need for a backup and how does it work?

Thankfully, the most common kind of backup today is what's referred to as a "Cloud Backup". This type of backup is usually installed as a default on most devices and a GroovyTek technician can help you ensure that the right files are being protected. A cloud backup is something like iCloud for Apple devices or OneDrive for PCs and takes advantage of storing your data ONLINE so that no matter what happens to the device, your data will still be recoverable. Some other examples of cloud based storage are Google Drive, Dropbox, and many others.

Cloud backups make protecting your data easy and effortless. It can backup your data as it changes and keep things up-to-date without having to have scheduled times to backup large amounts of data. Some of you may be familiar with external hard drives and other types of physical storage – these are a great way to create a copy of files, but aren't foolproof as they can be prone to physical failure or environmental damage. A GroovyTek trainer can help ensure that you have a system in place that works for you and is backing up the data that you care about.
