Don't forget to back up!
With so much of our lives stored in digital form, backing up data and computer files is no longer just a good idea: it's a necessity. Losing all your data because your computer came down with a nasty virus or got fried in an electrical storm can be inconvenient at best, devastating at worse.
Portable hard drives and cloud storage mean you can access your data wherever you need it, for work or entertainment. Our reviews, test results and buying guides will help you find the best and most reliable data storage option for your needs.
