7 Key tips to survive a personal computer disaster (AKA: - Disaster Recovery )
Loosing all of your files on your computers hard drive is a disaster

that can be easily avoided if you follow these seven simple steps.

1. Realizing this is a real danger
Did you know every year almost half of all computer users loose  irreplaceable files and that almost - 300,000 laptops are stolen annually.

2. Back up your files in a place off site
The easiest way to avoid loosing irreplaceable files is to back them up on CDs, DVDs, and external hard drives, but what good would this be if a thief steal's both because they are both stored in the same location. Always store your back up files somewhere safe and away from thieves and natural disasters.

3. Find a way to backup files automatically
Nothing is more tedious than having to save numerous files every week on a backup drive. the result is in most cases people do not backup everything and only backup important files here and there.

4. Do not settle with a partial backup solution
Do not settle for a small backup drive that is unprotected and will need to be replaced with a bigger drive down the road, always shoot for a complete backup on the largest media you can find. Keep in mind windows itself can become correct, you might need to - recover windows may need to be recovered in addition to your data.

5. In the event you do loose your files, make sure you have a quick backup system in place
Restoring files should not be a tedious process that is lengthy and confusing

6. Always protect your files
There is no point of backing up your files if some hacker can gain access to your data. So always make sure to add a - security measure to protect your files.

7. Find a easy to set up backup solution
Backing up your files is supposed to be a hard thing to make happen, installation should be quick and painless so it does not discourage you and make you get scared away.

Nice Post.

With the economy getting tighter I think many small businesses will be forced to become more tech savy, especially if they have no existing I.T. staff.
Those companies that do have an I.T. staff will most likely continue to look for ways to reduce their costs, or effectively add to their technical capabilities, by outsourcing some tech labor to those companies that specialize in" target=_blank>computer service .

Great Post - Great Points - Don't forget that if disaster strikes, you can get up and running fast with a plan that includes renting equipment if you need a temporary fix.

I can not tell you how many time I have had to tell someone their HDD is crashed only to next ask them if they have a backup, the answer is almost always NO.

We used t have an employee who would tell people "I guess the data was not really that important if you did not even bother to back it up" needless to say the clients did not find it amusing.
