Backing up your business

Taking extra steps to secure business and customer information may help avoid a costly disaster.

Up until recently, these services were out of reach for the average small business. Now, they are easy to use and reasonably priced. One of the most common and easiest to use is Carbonite ( This works by putting a small program on your computer that sends files to a central server. It detects what has changed on your PC since the last backup, and sends data at a timeframe that you select. Carbonite does this automatically, and your data is protected at all times. You can restore your data with just a few clicks. And, it only costs $54.95 per year. You can set your computer to do this complete backup every night when you are done for the day. The data is safe and private, as these services use strong encryption.

Keep your business data protected. Make sure that you have a plan to back up and protect your data. When you get that blank screen of a crashed computer, you will be happy that you can fall back on your backups, and will have your business running again before you know it.
