Today almost everybody has a computer where one stores his/her personal and important stuff. Some love to travel a lot and they click pictures and shoot videos while others have some family stuff so store so that one can preserve their these valuable moments. But have you ever wondered if all your stored data on your Computer’s hard drive goes away? Your hard drive may crash it may be damaged to due physical effects and more.
Then all of your data will go forever and you have nothing. So what to do? We have a best and easy way to preserve your data. Wondering how? Have you ever heard of online storage spaces? Yes, so use them. Are you thinking whether they are safe? Yes, they are unless you share it any one.
Right now there are many online storage services in the market. But I recommend you never store all of your data at a one place so better use Google Drive to back up your videos and photos. You can use other services too.
Right now I use Google Drive to back up important photos, videos and data, Flickr to upload all of my video and photos and Drop box for Documents only. You can also use them in same way.
Note: Backups are for your eyes only. so never share your private data with anyone
