You've got files on your computer that your life depends upon...or close to it. All of a sudden your computer is making some strange noises and the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end...is this the end of your PC's life as you know it? For a modest price you can purchase software "insurance" that will help you provide consistent PC system backup and peace of mind.
If your hard drive has kicked the bucket, there is no sure way to recover your data. But if you have created a backup, you can restore your system and get back all those important files, including your lastwillandtestament.doc which you thought you might have to invoke if your data was lost.
There are a number of ways to backup your system, some already installed on your computer, freeware to download and software to purchase at your local computer store.
