A backup is a copy of the important information stored on your devices. These devices could include your computer, phone, or tablet. This copy of your information can be restored to your devices at any time should disaster strike.
It’s a stressful thought, but a lot of people have had to confront it. Data loss is a serious issue that can cost businesses and home users a lot of time and money. There are many ways one might accidentally lose data. You might delete a file you didn’t realise you needed. Your hard drive could crash. You might get infected with a virus or be a victim of a ransomware attack. The simplest way to protect yourself against any of these situations is to have a secure and reliable backup.
A local backup involves copying your data to an external hard drive connected to your computer or laptop. There are several advantages to choosing a local backup.

Cloud storage provides you with space in the cloud to store and access your files. Examples of such services are Google Workspace and Microsoft 365. They allow you to work with your files remotely from any location via the internet.
A cloud backup solution also stores your files on a remote server but does not allow you to edit them directly. They can only be accessed by restoring them from the cloud to another location. They are updated on a regular basis to replicate your live data and you can have many versions of the same file.
