The reason why should backup files

1. As we all know, computer loss, theft, natural disaster and accident deletion can cause the loss of the data which you pay much price to create and accumulate. So storing all of your data in only one place is dangerous. Try to back up all files on computer can pledge your data security.

2. After backing up all files on computer, you can restore data when any data loss happen.

3. Creating a backup of all files means having data saved in two places, but it’s also important to make sure that those two places aren’t on the same type of device.
