TIP #95: Don't ever use software that doesn't backup

I talk in detail of my experience with software that doesn’t back up on my book 25 Tips for Productivity. Regardless how much technology had advance, and how easier is to do back up these days, people continue living without doing them. People is constantly loosing their data. Phones get lost, stoled, damaged and people loose all that information and hope that people will help them rebuild all that information.
If you don’t know how to set automatic backups ask, even pay someone. Don’t think on how much is that first setup going to cost you, think on how much can cost you get the information back. We think on how expensive may be to set the backup on the first place, and hope that it doesn’t happen to us. Sadly when it does and you discover you don’t have a backup how much it is going to take you to recover the information, worse how expensive it is going to be to lost that information.
It is for that reason that if the software doesn’t backup I don’t use it. The cost of recover the information is too high, in many cases it is impossible to recover.
Check the software you are putting information, on your Phone and your Tablet. Can you back them up? Can you restore the Information if you lose the phone or the tablet? If the answer is NO to any of this questions, it is the time to migrate, or find a way to backup your information. Think how expensive and hard it is going to be to replace it.
