Backup up your files in as easy as ABC.

Hi there everyone this is Jonathan. I am here again to give you some simple advice about information technology, particularly about computers. Today I’ll be discussing about computer files, on how you can backup them regularly without wasting your time doing it.

If ever you are using a computer whether it is a office computer, personal computer or a laptop. Chances are, you have a valuable file inside it and you don’t want it to be deleted. Today there are so many ways on how you can backup your files.

If you go to Google then search for “how to backup my computer files” you’ll be given a lot of offers ranging from personal and corporate application that enable you to backup your files. But I will not be discussing those applications on this article.

What I am going to discuss this time is about using a form of backup that is free and almost available to everybody.

If you own an Android phone chances are you also own a Google email or Gmail account that you have used to access Google Play Store on your Android Smartphone.

I am talking about Google Drive here. Note: I am not endorsing Google Drive. It is just so happen that it is one of the simplest way to backup your files if you are using a computer or an office computer wherein files are saved inside it for your office use.

All you need to do is to access your Google Drive in your computer. You also can access it on your Android phone while on the go provided that you have a mobile data access or a Wi-Fi that is accessible near you.

To access your Google Drive on your computer just go to this link drive.google.com, you have to use Google Chrome in this one. I did not tested it using any other browser other than Google Chrome. You’ll be asked to login your Gmail account. Go on login using your Gmail account. After you have login you’ll be presented with some welcome screen, don’t worry it does only appear at the first time you log-in into your Google Drive.

After you have logged-in you now be able to upload files on it. If you want to create you personalized folder just click the “NEW” button at the upper left corner of your Google Drive. FYI, it is best to backup your spreadsheets, word files, and presentation on your Google Drive. You can also upload pictures on it.

That’s it the rest of the Google Drive controls is self explanatory. Good luck.

Recently I had given my computer for repair and due to negligence on their part much of my data was deleted. They did try to recover but not all of it. So I do hope now that with uploading my files to google drive I have nothing to worry.

    This is just the inforformation that I needed. Thank you for your expertise and knowledge on this excellent post. It's important that we can save our data and with back-up systems. File Cloud as I know has become very popular on the internet; this information has given me an eye-view into what you know about this knowledge in advanced technology that's increasing and spreading fast online and offline for all internet users; that we can integrate with our files and data and know the specific key factors involved and what's trending.

      You can backup your file using one of the oldest way to do it... use a mobile hard disk drive. You can use a mobile hard disk drive of you are not comfortable in putting up your files in a cloud. But make sure to not store your mobile hard drive at the same location because in case of fire all of them will be annihilated an you will be left with no backup at all.

    Indeed its the easiest way to backup your files but the market now has many differnt Apps/Websites which offer same facilities. Some of them even offer more storage than Google's 15GB free storage. Also, drive.google.com works on every single browser as its just an url which will work irrespective of the browser. :)

      You are correct, it's only a site, my point there is... Google said that Google Drive is optimized when using Google Chrome. I never said that it will not work on a different browser. :)
