One of the most important reasons you should create a backup for all your data is that hard drives will fail at some point. Attacks from viruses, malware, physical mistreatment, wear from use, and numerous other factors can contribute to a hard drive crashing or dying. This is an unavoidable problem; it is just a matter of time before it happens. By preparing for this ahead of time, retrieving data will be a much quicker and simpler process.
When the hard drive does crash, the information will most likely still be on the hard drive. So when you do try and retrieve it, there are only a handful of computer places that will actually try and help you; making this a very expensive process. Even if your hard drive does not fail or die, external storage of your data can also have other benefits. By performing a computer backup and placing your files on an external drive, you can make your data more portable or easily accessible.
Some external devices can even be utilized on a wireless network, allowing you to use your backup system as a wireless storage device for more than one computer. There are also Internet services that will allow you to perform a computer backup by storing your data on their remote servers.
This can allow you to then access your files and information from any computer with Internet access anywhere in the world.
Backing up your computer data either on an external hard drive or by using some internet service is a good investment. The money that you would be spending to buy an external hard drive would become an investment in the long run, by saving you the expensive price of having to take it through a company that specializes in data recovery.
