Hi everyone, Robert Cairns CEO and Chief creator of amazing idea to stunning digital marketing.com here, hope you’re all well. Today I want to talk about backups for your data. One thing I would do is use the export function on all my cloud based applications to backup data having them on a weekly basis or soon, most cloud based apps have important functions. So there should not be an issue. This backup should include it things like your Google Calendar, and Google Contacts. And folks don’t think cloud based solutions don’t go down, don’t lose data, they do their thing. Remember when talking backups is services like Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, or Google Drive are not backup services. These are what we called sync services. This means if the local copy the files deleted, that no one on the servers delete as well. So keep that in mind as well. I always keep three copies of each file. Now, this is a little off script from how I wrote this podcast, but I use a Synology NAS server, and I have one off site and they keep in sync. But for most people, you’re not going to do that. What I suggest is you keep the original and two backups. One of these copies should always be stored off site. For a small business. This can be achieved by having two USB hard drives and taking one home every week and swapping them around. Very simple. Remember, you need to backup your data as quickly as you cannot afford to lose it. And frankly, the reason for taking one off site is if you have a fire or theft, things like that. If you want to set it and forget it. An option for one copy might be a backup service to services. I really like an abuse and pass and restored successfully from our Carbonite jungle. Jungle disk is the Amazon service. Both of these services can be paid monthly or yearly. And remember, please check before it’s too late. Your backups can actually be restored. So protect your business, backup your data. Thanks for joining me. Until next time, please take care. Have a great day. Bye. Bye for now.
