You never need to back up your PC – until it breaks down that is. Trust me, I’ve been there. One thing that could help is being bothered to regularly back up, another could be the ExBoot, which makes backing up your computer information faster and easier.
The small white unit connects to the computer via the USB socket and it is claimed to be the only one on the market that is bootable, so you can restart your machine from the back-up device. So if the hard drive fails, get a new one and restart the machine from the ExBoot drive, which should restore you back to normal.
An ExBoot costs around £169 plus VAT and can store up to 200GB of your data. Visit www.onetouchbackup.co.uk for further details.
