Back-up your data

Backup your data

You can purchase an external hard drive and copy the contents of your computer to it. The initial backup could take several hours, so you will need to select a period of time when you do not need access to your computer. Running the backup overnight usually works best. Follow-up backups should be conducted on a regular basis but will not take as long because the drive will only need to copy your most recent files. If this sounds like too much for you to do, Silver Star Computers and Solutions offers automatic back-ups for a $25 set-up fee and $5 per month up to 50GB of data.
