Backing up your computer is very important due to all the threat's computer's face today. Did you know that your hard drive can take a "fail" on you at anytime. Despite how new the hard drive is, it still can happen. Some threats the hard drive faces are hardware failure, malware, spyware and viruses.
Now that you know the bad news here is the good. You may be thinking "I can just back my computer up to get greatly increase my chances of saving my hard work." You are correct. It is that simple.
Backing up your computer for some people can actually save their job. Take me for an example: I am an architect and I work for my brother on a computer repair business. My architect boss has been asking me all week for a blueprint and I finally finished it. Right before I was about to email it, guess what. My laptop got hit with the hardware failure aka blue screen of death. Luckily, I have a habit of manually backing up my files when I finish with them. So I was already a third of the way done.
You can not believe how many people ask me "How do I get my files back because my hard drive just crashed". I tell them all "You can not get files off of a dead hard drive". What you do not back up you have a risk of losing and that's it. Some people may find backing up time consuming but really it's not. You will especially think it's not when your taking the time to redo all the work you lost.
