After you have set up your jewelry business software you want to make sure that the data is safe. Viruses, malware, power failure and hard drive problems can occur at any time. We strongly recommend that you back up your computer on a regular basis. It is also wise to have many back ups in case one of the backups is corrupt. The last thing you need is to restore a backup and find that is corrupt.
You can use an external drive or a cloud storage service such as Google Drive or DropBox. We use Carbonite to automatically back up data in the background continuously. It can also create a mirror image of your hard drive which can then be restored to the same or a new computer. Your new computer will be identical to the one that crashed. There are many other backup software programs available. Here’s a review from PC Magazine.
