In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basics of data backup solutions for phones, laptops, tablets and other devices in case of damage or failure. Such backups are vital, both for individuals and companies, ensuring your important information stored on such devices is not lost even if an unexpected event damages or otherwise impacts the device.
At FixIT Mobile, we’re proud to offer a wide range of phone repairs, tablet repairs, laptop repairs and many others – and we always recommend data backup to clients, whether or not they’ve recently lost important information due to a lack of a backup. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll go over a few other important reasons why individuals, businesses and others should always have their data backed up on important devices.
Both in business and in individual settings, archives are valuable in several ways. And in modern times, archives match up perfectly with data backups, which are a perfect way of tracking company history, personal history or any other set of data you want archived. If you fail to perform proper backups, on the other hand, you might waste significant efforts when data is lost and cannot be recovered.
Lack of Wasted Time
Whether we’re talking workplace productivity or simple convenience in your personal life and file storage, a convenient data backup makes it easy to keep track of all your data in one place. If you need to access something that hasn’t been opened in months or years, there’s no need to scroll for ages or manually search through a bunch of separate files – you simply go to your most recent backup and extract whatever you need. In larger workplaces, this capability is a foundational element of daily productivity.
Competitive Advantage and IP
And yet, despite the clear benefits we’ve laid out here, there are still many businesses or individuals in the business world who do not adequately back up their data. In this case, those who do will hold a specific competitive advantage when it comes to protecting their intellectual property (IP) and other IT resources.
Finally, both in personal life and other areas, data backups offer peace of mind to those who keep and store important data on any of their devices. Many are aware of the sheer terror that comes with potentially having just damaged a device that holds sensitive or important information you won’t be able to recover – but this sensation becomes a thing of the past when you perform regular backups.
