Don't want to lose your crucial data, simply Metrofile it...

All of us nowadays depend on computers be it for personal use or work, or for business. But, have you ever considered what would happen if you were to wake up one day and for some reason, all your precious data is suddenly gone.

This is an ever-present risk especially when you use the Internet as well.

While various tools are available in the market to help protect your valuable data from hackers - firewalls and various protection software packages for viruses, it is essential to have regular offsite back ups done of your most important data.

This is because firewalls and anti-virus software do not exactly protect you against data loss due to theft, hardware or software failure, fire at your premises, flooding, power surges/outages or human error by your staff such as physical damage, unintentional deleting, over write, formatting etc.

If you don't want to lose crucial information through any of the above, it is a good idea to create off-site back ups of all of your organisation's data. Having off-site back ups will leave you at peace knowing that your important data is safe somewhere and accessible each time you will need to recover it.
