File Transfer and Data Backup
There are just some things you canít replace. Whether it is family photos, music, files or important documents, the last thing you want to do is lose them. We know what it takes to create secure data file backups and transfer them to your new PC to ensure your information is safe.

Computer Backup Options
Get a second hard disk
You can install a drive that's just as big as your existing hard disk and then copy, or mirror, all of the data on the second drive. Hard disk prices have dropped considerably, and mirroring a disk makes it easy to replace lost data. But keeping all of your backup data on the same system leaves it vulnerable to the same problems that might affect your primary hard disk.

Get an external hard disk
You can plug in (USB) an external drive that's just as big as your existing hard disk and then copy all of the data onto the external drive using backup software. External hard disks are inexpensive and therefore cost effective to use this method for backing up your data.

Use an online backup service
These services allow you to upload your data over the Internet to remote servers ó if you need to restore lost data, you simply log on to the backup service and download your files. Internet backup services offer several benefits: they're cheap, easy to use, and very reliable. But Internet backups can be slow, and you'll need Internet access to retrieve your backup files. You should never rely only on Internet backups; data safety, if the company storing your data goes out of business, your data might vanish too.

Note: If you don't feel confident in data backups or file transfers, please feel free to contact CompuRepair. Our technicians are trained and can advice you about backing up data and put procedures and equipment into place to perform backups - we are only a call away.

Data Backup Procedures
Full backups
This is a complete set of all of the data you want to back up. You'll want to keep a current backup of your entire system around, but you don't need to do these daily, as most of your files don't change every day and full backups are time-consuming.

Differential backups
This is the set of any files that have changed since the last full backup. These backups take less time and space than a full backup, but more than an incremental backup.

Incremental backups
This is the set of files that have changed since the previous backup (whether it is a differential, incremental, or full backup). These backups take the least time and space, but in the event of data loss you'll need to restore data from several backups (the last full backup, the last differential, and all the incremental backups since the last differential) and restore them in precisely the correct order.
