Simplify Backup with Hard Disk Drives

ClickfreeCDs and DVDs are the most stable way to back up files. These discs contain no moving parts and are not affected by computer viruses and other problems. Unfortunately, creating CDs and DVDs is not simple and takes time. See A Consumer Guide to Recordable CDs and DVDs for more information.

Hard disks may be less permanent than CDs, but the process required to back up photographs and other files is far less complicated. In fact, the Clickfree drive proves how easy the process can be. This drive automatically finds photographs and other files and then backs them up when it is plugged into your computer’s USB port. In my tests the Clickfree drive worked flawlessly. And while I will continue to use CDs and DVDs to preserve important photos, I am planning to use this drive every week  to backup my files. It is simply too easy.

  1. I just blogged about the importance of backing up photos and all information on your computers, especially laptops. I will have to check into this, it sounds like a great product alternative to issues normally related to external hard drives. Thanks for sharing this information.
