It is not always easy to back up your computer. It usually requires a large external drive to back-up everything. Back up important files like forms, taxes, and pictures that are hard to replace which can be placed on a portable hard drive, USB flash drive, or the Cloud. Files such as music and movies can be downloaded again from the vendor.
Online backups, or the “Cloud”, could also be used as a storage option. Vendors such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Apple iCloud, to name a few, all have storage options. If additional space is needed, you are able to purchase more for a monthly fee.
