Years ago, computers were by and large unreliable. Sure, you could crank out all sorts of data, but storing it to magnetic discs or (worse yet) tape was a nightmare.
Hard drives have made things considerably more reliable through the years, but a problem remains — that hard drive isn’t perfect, so what can one do to protect data should that piece of hardware fail?
The answer is easy enough — get some good Backup Software. But, what kind of software should you get? That can be a hard question to answer, but a solid suggestion is to check out the best free backup software available anywhere (just click on the aforementioned link and see for yourself).
In addition to Backup software, a very popular and often necessary upgrade is a solid state drive (SSD) to either replace or augment that slower and less reliable hard disk drive (HDD). But, there is a problem — the performance boost of putting Microsoft Windows on an SSD can be considerable but moving Windows over can be a daunting.
Ah, but there is an easy way to copy HDD so SSD (again, click the link and see for yourself).
