Mother Nature is truly unpredictable, which has been proven in the past few years, with countless weather-related disasters that have occurred across the globe. From disastrous hurricanes and flooding, to tornado activity and earthquakes around the globe, it's apparent that no one knows when Mother Nature is going to hand out a devastating blow. Predictions for high tornado and hurricane activity this year make preparation for these disasters imperative.
Too many people forget to backup their computer until it's too late. Most people irreplaceable data including personal and business records, photos, music collections, and more on their computers, and in moments, bad weather can destroy everything.
Carbonite's online data backup service is just $49.95 a year and can be tried for 15 days at no cost. Once the original backup is completed, all new and changed files are backed up automatically, when your computer is idle, so it never effects the speed of your computer or internet connection.
Your files are encrypted twice just like banks do, before the files ever leave your hard drive. And since it's a web-based service, your computer and backup hard drive could be lost in the wind, and you would still be able to access your files in minutes from any other computer.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced it anticipated an above normal hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin. At a recent news conference NOAA urged those in areas that are vulnerable to do everything possible to prepare for this hurricane season.
Preparation is truly the key, and when it comes to data that people have stored on computers, making sure that it will be safe, even if the computer is destroyed, is extremely important.
With a virtual data backup service, computer owners can automatically and easily secure their data in a remote location so they can access it, even if their computer is lost or damaged in a natural disaster.
