Reasons to backup

  • Protection against hardware failure: Devices such as hard drives, USB flash drives and memory cards can fail at any time, resulting in the loss of all the data stored on them. With regular backups, you can recover this data in the event of a failure.
  • Protection against cyber attacks: Cyber attacks such as viruses and malware can damage or destroy important data. With regular backups, you can recover this data if it is affected by a cyber attack.
  • Protection against human error: Sometimes human error can lead to the loss of important data, such as accidental deletion of files. With regular backups, you can recover this data in case of an error.
