Six of the most frequent, detrimental, and easily avoidable mistakes when backing up in Windows are...
- Not backing up at all
- Setting a time for scheduled backup when the computer is asleep
- No backup storage device available or not enough space available
- No cloud backup
- Failing to select all important files for backup (e.g. Outlook.pst, iPhone backup files)
- Open files may not be copied
Avoid these common mistakes by selecting an easy to use backup system that utilizes continuous data backup that copies new files and changes without a schedule throughout the day, provides backup storage management so that backup storage is never full, and alerts for issues that prevent backup such as no backup storage connected.
