  • Back it Up!
    by KJ Newby
    December 2006
    For anyone who uses a computer on a regular basis, data backup is very important!

    When you backup your data, you are storing your files on a disk or drive separated from your primary computer. In this way, if anything occurs to your computer or damage comes to your file on the computer, then you still have your data in backup so that you can restore it onto your original machine or another machine.

    This allows you to keep your data even if great damage comes to your computer. No one wants to have their system crash and then discover that all of their data is gone because they made no backups.

    There are many methods for backing up your data. All that is required is to store your information on a drive or disk separate from your primary computer. If you operate on a home LAN (Local Area Network) system, for example, you can transfer your files to the other computers on your network and in this way ensure that even if one computer fails you will still have your files on another computer.

    There are also where you can store your data on an online server. For most home users, backing up your important data such as photos, emails and documents can easily be done by burning them to a CD. However an online backup would be a great solution for businesses and residential customers with lots of data, because your data can be backed up daily, weekly or monthly without having to waste a lot of money on CD's.

    BMI will soon be offering Online Data Backup to provide you with a safe Data Backup solution for your home or business needs.
