Remember this - if you have any data stored in only one place, such as your computer, or external hard drive, or flash drive, then you don't have a backup.  Many people come to us with an external hard drive they call their backup drive, but it's the only thing they keep the data on - that's not a backup.

Backing up is simple.  Work out what you want backed up (docs, pictures, music, emails, accounting software is a good start), buy a cheap little 500gb hard drive and use one of the many free backup programs to automate your backup, or at least reduce it to a single click to start.  Many hard drives come with backup software included. Of the freely downloadable stuff I use Cobian Backup.  It's pretty simple to set up, can be scheduled to run automatically, copies the files directly so you don't need special software to recover the data, and can send you an email every time it so you know all is ok.  You can find a whole lot more at, just skip past the sponsored results.
