Necessity to Do Files and Folders Backup

"Always be prepared for unexpected future." It is also true when comes to files and folders security in computers. With the fast development of technology and wide use of computers, it is increasingly common to see PC failures. Whether it is virus or hijack attack, system crash or disk damage, they all result in data loss, big or small. Many files on our computer are of great importance for us, including email, music, photos, videos, documents, personal settings, bookmarks, and applications.

"Do not put all eggs in one basket." Similarly, in case of data loss due to accidents, we should make a backup of important files and save the image file in another place. Thus, once bad events happen, we can retrieve the desired files by simply restoring them from the backup image we have made before.

To make file backup easy to conduct, we need the best file backup software for free - AOMEI Backupper Standard. In addition to the File Backup feature, it offers the File Sync feature which enables you to sync any local folders to OneDrive.
