houston-floodToday’s tip title is something that should never come out of your mouth.

What happens? You lose all your important documents including your insurance information. That presentation that you worked on all week is toast. Your family photos are gone. You don’t have a backup of any of this. Breaking out into a cold sweat yet? It’s 2015; this doesn’t have to be you. There are a variety of backup solutions that are safe, affordable, and easy to use for the family computer and your home office. iCloud, Backblaze, Dropbox, Google Drive.
