Computers and devices fail all of the time and your data is more valuable than your device! Just think how you would feel if you lost the $1,000 in music and movies you have on your device, and the digital video of your wedding, your little boy or girl's first step. You can get a new computer or phone, but try replacing those important files: You can't! So what do you do? How do you make sure you never lose the information that is important to you? You back them up! Having a backup strategy means that you setup processes that will automatically backup your data. Want to get started? Here are 4 Apps you can use that will automatically backup your devices.
