Back up online
You can restore programs, tweak settings and even reinstall your Mac or iOS device, but what you can’t do is replace your precious data. What’s the price on your documents, photos and other personal and professional files? Avoid the stress of data loss by making sure you’re backed up – cloud-based solutions allow you to store key data remotely, protecting you in case of fire or theft. Don’t automatically go down the iCloud route though – Microsoft’s OneDrive offers 15GB for free, for example, while Dropbox Pro charges £7.99/month for 1TB storage space, significantly less than iCloud. However, iCloud offers more flexible pricing – 20GB extra storage costs just 79p per month.
