Most of people come to me asking for help about computer problem have their most problem is: DATA-LOSS.
The most reasons are:
- They save all their data in “My Documents” folder and then Windows crashed. They have to install Windows again with Dish Formatted.
- They save all their valuable data on the Desktop or C drive…which is the same problem as above.
- Their laptop was stolen or broken
- They lost their USB Flash device or their Cell phone/BlackBerry/iPhone…
Yes, there’s many other reasons for data-loss and I just can’t list them all here. What to do if you’re in this trouble? I hope I can tell you in another blog post. In this post I will show you how to avoid this from happening. (If you find this post helpful please help me to spread the words to your friends – there’s a share button at the end of this post).
Tip 1: Never save your data in the DEFAULT place.
DON’T SAVE DATA IN C: drive/My Documents/Desktop…which is belonged to unstable Operating System like Windows or even Linux, SAVE them in D: drive, E: drive or burn them into CD/DVD. This way is just a best practice to help data-losing in most cases.
Tip 2: Save your important data on the cloud with Email
Nowadays everybody uses good storage email services like Gmail, Hotmail. Yahoo Mail…
They give you a great amount of storage, eg: Gmail give us about 7GB for free with fast uploading.
Why don’t you send yourself an email contain the most important file? But please note that these mail service won’t allow any file type, so please use Winrar or Winzip to compress them. Also make a hard-to-guess email password.
