Never just move your data – COPY IT!

Backing up your important files is as essential as ever but what are many people doing wrong?

It is often assumed that computers will run out of space when storing hundreds of photos or documents on the computer. Well once upon a time that was very true however times have changed. Today most computers have disks large enough to hold tens of thousands of photos or documents without making a dent into the capacity of the disk.

What we @computercare find is that far too many customers are still moving files off their computers onto external hard disks or memory sticks without leaving the originals on their computer. This happens to be a dangerous method as faulty media or a forgotten encryption key may mean all those precious documents are lost forever.
