Seeing that, most experts suggest that you should regular update a back up in order to avoid potential damaging losses of data. The easiest way that experts would advise is to use an external hard drive in trying to back up your files.

Similar to an external hard drive, a USB could also be used for saving files. However, unlike the external hard drive, the capacity of a USB is somehow limited to small or individual files.

In using both methods in securing a file back up, it would be good to organize your data for easy access properly. Similar to your computer, folders should be created and renamed accordingly.

Since the devices are external, you should keep it away from any elements that could damage it. If such storage devices will be corrupted, then its purpose would surely be defeated.

If you are not convinced with the external devices to secure your data, you may try using a different medium. In today's generation, cloud storage services like Dropbox are highly used for file back up.

The said method is easy, fast, and in some cases free. You just need to have access online in order to store your data online.

However, the downside of such approach is that the free versions only come with limited storage capacity. That is why you might be prompted to pay some amount.

However, if your files are critical, then paying a monthly due will simply be your secondary concern. Before you decide on the said matter, it would be better to scrutinize what is the best way of backing up your file based on your lifestyle and personal need.
