Yep, I know. You hear all the time that you should back up your company computers. But you just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
There is an abundance of horror stories about computers that have died. You probably know someone who that has happened to. So what are you waiting for?
Here’s a simple story. Last night I was doing some checking on my websites to make sure everything was still working the way it was supposed to be and I discovered that the Small Business Blog Directory was having some problems. During my research I found the problem in one of the files that directs users to the correct pages of the site. And I decided to fix it. Big mistake. All I did was break it worse. After panicking for a nano second, I hopped onto my back up system and restored the file to a previous version. Presto! All fixed.
I hate to think of what the situation would have entailed if I didn’t have a back up. That was just one website. What if it was your main company computer? Or all your company computers? It happens.
Move getting a back up for your business up on the priority list. There are plenty of back up options from back up software and services to back up hardware. Don’t wait one more day. Your business will thank you and you will sleep better at night.
