When most people think of online backup they think of backing up text files such as documents and spreadsheets. However, online backup can also protect other types of files from the unknown and this includes your most priceless memories.
Many people use their computer as a place to store the many pictures that they take with their digital cameras and you might do the same. You may even save some personal home videos to your computer‘s hard drive as well. Maybe a song or two that you composed and is special to you and your family. While this is a logical solution as there is plenty of space on your hard drive and you can therefore hold a lot of memories, what happens if your hard drive becomes corrupt or even crashes?
