2) This post has been one of the most popular here on OneCoolTip.  A few additional ways to backup your important data include copying files to cloud storage systems like DropBoxMicrosoft One Drive and Google Drive.  

In addition, with so many photos stored on a phone, it's best to ensure there is an auto-upload photo program like Google's new Google Photo app to ensure that if the device is lost or stolen, you still have your precious photos.

One of the worse things that can happen to a computer user is to lose one's data.

It's there one day. And then it's gone. Never to come back again.

Treasured family photos. Financial records. A doctoral dissertation.

Gone. Forever.

But it doesn't have to happen. Like most things in life, a little prevention is the best medicine.

Data can be backed up easily in a variety of ways, USB Flash Drives, CD and DVD Writers, External Hard Drives, or online storage. Each can be useful.

If you are paranoid, use them all. The point is it's never to early to back up your data and store it in a safe place.

One caveat is to always keep financial information secure.  And that probably means keeping it to a physical medium like a disk drive or CD that is stored at a different location.
