Backup and Data Recovery are two different concepts. Data Recovery always comes after when your system fails to have a Good Backup System. It is very essential for everyone. We mostly realize this when we accidently loose our data. That can be due to hardware failure, software failure, virus, etc. But there is nothing you can do for theft or lost of your system. In that case some online backup system can only help. I had mentioned mostly that stuff here which is related to your personal computer. It does not matter most if it is a Desktop or Laptop. We carry some of our important files in our desktop. Time has gone when people use to carry a different file with sheets of papers attached inside for every work. That has become virtual. With the help of operating systems like Windows, Mac or Linux we are enough capable to process our documents easily and share the same in some seconds. But what about the Backup part. Once you are done with the document you do not delete that. You keep in safe for future record. Bigger enterprise can pay a higher amount for backup services. They get dedicated hardware/software support for that, which is not possible for every individual.
I had tried my best to provide you from most basic, to most advance backup system that everyone can afford. If you want you can pay for a license software or else there are open source alternative also. Open Source are those software’s which are available for free usage under a public license. They are developed and tested by independent developers which is widely called as open source community. You can too be a part of the same. They are more reliable than using a pirated copy of any software. Before beginning there are some common doubts. Does everyone really concern to backup their files. It does not matter if they are your photos or emails. Not really. Because many of use never face that issue. Many of us carry portable gadgets like an mobile phone, usb drive, etc which an better place for storing your file. But if in future you lost it, or it is damaged, you lose everything. Backup is an habit of securing your files. This habit does not only help you at your home, but also at your office. I have seen many, they even keep safe papers which are not use. They use pencil to mark certain important terms in that. That is an habit. There are many advance and basic tools you can use for this purpose.
Windows is an widely used operating system. Along with them Mac and Linux too has its own region. Each of them has an automated backup program in them. This runs via Wizard and guides you for the process. So half of you job in done in that place. Other than this you can also schedule your backup by assigning date and time. The system automatically runs that process without your interference. So not need to worry about regular backups. I had posted the most common question which arises in mind first for backup. You can make a list of the same and fill them up as per your need.
