Ways to back up files and data, you can either do it on cloud storage, online backup, or use freeware to do this. AOMEI provides both way to satisfy you with Backupper and DropInOne.

Why back up

People may ask why we have to backup data online or use software to backup. To begin with, I’d like to say computers are become mostly used tool in our life, we saved a lot of files and our personal information on it. In order to protect our data, to do backup is necessary.

Following situation may happen to destroy our files:

  • Hardware failure: computer damage like overheat on main board and vga card, abrade on hard disk magnetic read. etc.
  • Computer Viruses: some viruses come check your files on whatever purpose
  • Theft: cell phones, tablet, may record your personal data.
  • Accidental deletion: short cut on keyboard “Shift+Delete” can delete your files permanently, if you always delete file like this, it is not easy to recover.
  • Nature disaster: fire, floods, storms, earthquake, and other disasters, none of which do we want to happen.

Online backup service

To prevent data loss on above situation, backup program come into being. Ways of backing up is various, but mainly there are two kinds: online data backup and backup software.
