If you are not backing up your important personal files and data – your probably crazy; if your not backing up your important business files and data – you are crazy.

With data loss, it is never a question of if it will happen, but when it will happen. Hard drives in computers are mechanical, and all mechanical things will fail eventually. Loosing your important business files could be a major disaster to your business that you can easily prevent, maybe even for free.

Dropbox: Free 2GB Online Backups

If your files are relatively small (fit on a USB flash drive), try Dropbox 2GB. It is a free service that allows you to backup any type of file on their secure server. Download the My Dropbox application and set up a local folder on your computer to automatically synchronize with the server. Install the application on your other computers, and you can make sure everyone has the same files. Quickly access the files without the need of a downloaded application on their website with your username and password.

Need more space? $9.99 a month for 50GB and $19.99 a month for 100GB of space.
