A lot of people don’t know how to do a back up of their computer. It’s so easy and completely automated for people now, with new programs doing all the work for us. Wizards allow us to click a “Next” button until it says “Finished.”
It’s as easy as plugging in a USB plug. Multiple hard drives can be used for different kinds of files on a single computer, where more than one drive can be used at a time.
Getting enough space to back up the entire systemis essential – get all the information on one drive by getting one with ample room for what is there. A terra-drive is recommended; with an entire terrabyte to transfer the back up to, nothing is going to be lost and there’s room for everything.
Use a Different Drive for Different File Types
A photographer in Oregon uses his terra-drives to store his photos and he has several of them. One is for sceneries, one is for portraits, another is for animals, another is for journalistic or artistic shots, one is for his family photos and the last one is for his computer back up.
Each one sits next to the other on a shelf above his desk with a hub connecting them all together and to his pc at the same time.
Many of the new solitary hard drives come with software to help someone back up their computer onto them, and it’s a matter of clicking a button to get it done. It’s so easy now, nobody has an excuse for not doing it. Our advice? Just do it.
