Good backups will save you time and money.

When (not if) your computer meets with a disaster, be prepared!

Backups. No one likes to think about the possibility of a computer crashing, but it happens every day. Computer crashes can happen without warning and can be catastrophic.

Performing regular backups doesn't fall on anyone's list of fun things to do. But, you will save yourself the time needed to recreate data, the monetary cost of lost productivity, and the heartache of losing data that is not reproducible.

Many people think they don't have important data on their systems, but almost everyone has something they would be upset to lose.
