It still amazes me that this day in age, that you need to remind people to backup their computers, or more commonly, try to convince people that backing up your important files once every six months to a flash drive or external hard drive isn’t exactly the best strategy.
Now, you definitely have no excuse. Earlier this month Google released their new desktop client for Google Drive. The most important feature that it added that the client lacked before was the ability to automatically and continuously backup files on your desktop, documents folder, etc. Just download once, set it and forget it, the client does the rest. Best of all, every Gmail user already has 15 gb free! It’s not much but it’s plenty enough to backup impo documents and such.
Even if you already have backups, why not just add one more layer on top of it for extra protection? Go download the Google Drive client for Mac or PC and get it setup and enjoy peace of mind.
