You need to back up your data to restore it in a disaster (such as hardware failure, theft, etc.).

First, you should make sure you use a service like OneDrive or Google Drive. They automatically store your essential folders and files in the cloud. These services offer a lot of storage for free. Also, use a backup tool to back up your other important data to an external hard drive or network drive. An excellent free tool is FBackup (it saves the data in a ZIP file so that it can be opened by many unpacking programs and encrypted with a password).

Second, back up your smartphone (or tablet) data. If your phone is from Samsung, you need a Samsung account and the proper settings. Phones and tablets from other manufacturers offer similar features. If your phone breaks or someone steals it, you can restore your data from your backups to a new phone.

That's it for today, my friends! See you later in the next post!
