- You can take several preventative measures:
- Let us host your data. We use Amazon's replication servers. Data is duplicated in two areas. If there is a question or problem, we can restore to a recent backup. Best of all, the data connections are very fast.
- Back up to the cloud, a CD, a portable hard drive or other secure, non-networked device EVERY DAY!
- How do you backup? Learn how to create a daily automatic backup of your Wintix data then copy that backup EVERY DAY to a non-networked device or the cloud.
