Friendly Reminder: Back Up Your Data
With the convenience of the cloud and apps like Google Drive, it’s pretty easy to forget to back up your data. This is just a friendly reminder to do so!
Data on Google Drive:
Make sure that you have all of your data backed up either on your hard drive, a storage device, or a separate cloud storage service.
If you are using Drive File Stream, it is very important that you are regularly checking drive.google.com to make sure that your data is syncing/saving properly.
Once you’re logged into your google drive via web browser make sure that any files you worked on using drive file stream are present and up to date. You can access your drive via file stream or web browser on any device.
Losing data can be incredibly stressful, but it is preventable! Here are some previously shared tips:
If you have any questions or concerns about this please reference our knowledge base articles or contact the ITS Help Desk for further assistance!
- Your critical data should never reside in a single place.
- The ideal backup strategy will typically include both an online backup service (Google Drive) to ensure your data is secure no matter what happens to your mobile device or computer.
- Running consistent, automatic backups is a straightforward process that will take a little time to set up and will require even less to maintain.
- Backups can be configured to run in real time when files on your computer are changed.
- Routinely test your backup solution to ensure you can recover your data in the event that you do actually need to restore from a backup.
