It’s true, as humans we’ve always had an urge to collect physical objects which have meaning to us, whether it be for emotional reasons such as memories and nostalgia, or for the practicality they offer. And it’s no different in this day and age either. Data, for example, is one thing every one of us collect. Our music, photos, videos and documents may be mostly virtual, but that doesn’t mean they can’t become a pain to store.
We store our computer data in a range of different ways. Some of us use compact discs, some of us use flash drives, and some of us use external hard drives.
Compact discs, flash drives and external hard drives are great, but over time these can build into a collection of their own, especially compact discs. These devices are also prone to damage, theft, loss, and individually offer small amounts of storage space, becoming costly as users buy them as their data continues to grow.
But how do you tackle the problems which this technology brings?
Have you heard of cloud storage? This is a popular new system which a lot of users are turning to for the following reasons:
- Data is stored offsite on third party servers, meaning more space on their hard drives
- Remote access from any internet ready device—anywhere in the world!
- Automated backups, meaning no more tedious manual backups of data need to be performed
- Vast amounts of storage, from terabytes to unlimited
- Cheap package plans that undercut the cost of compact discs and flash drives, etc
- Cool features such as file sharing, data syncing between devices, and file versioning
If you’re tired of hoarding compact discs and clogging up your hard drive with masses of data, why not give the free trial version of our cloud storage software a whirl today?
