One of the worst feelings at the office is when a computer crashes and your business experiences a data loss. Not only is there a loss of productivity and the cost of replacing computer hardware but the loss of important data (current projects, client information, sales data, etc) is far more costly.
Purchasing a backup hard drive is one of the easiest ways to avoid data loss. Even if a hard drive or primary server drive crashes you will at least be able to retrieve the data from your backup copy. No matter if you choose to buy a USB external device, RAID or network attached device the important part to remember is that you have a backup copy!
There are hundreds of brands to choose from including portable external drives or an additional internal disk drive inside your desktop PC or Mac workstation. Do your research! You may find that a bus-powered external is best for your particular needs. Most of these drives work across multiple platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux so they are adaptable to your business environment.
BACKUP YOUR DATA!!! Don't wait until it's too late!!!
