    When it comes to your personal files, do you tend to back them up often, or do you not do backups as often as you should? I try to do a backup every year, and save all photos, videos, and other personal files to a personal cloud drive. I also have various HDDs with all my personal stuff just in case I lose it elsewhere. What about you?

    I don’t think backing up now worth it, because all your photos can automatically uploaded and backed up on google, same goes for whatsapp also.

    Since now Google has brought only 15gb storage, I have switched off my backup option temporarily. Other than that, I usually back up all my files once in six months.

    I back up my important files in External HDD. I review my files every month and I erase unwanted files and I sometimes burn my most important files on DVD for additional safety.

    I usually backup my files after my phones memory becomes full, then would burn it blue-ray disks when it reaches 25GB. Or I would back up and clear memory from my mobile before and after going on a trip with my friends, as my mobile would become filled with photos.

    Once in three to six months period would be better. I take backup in my external hard drive. Store all my files and photos.

    I used to backup regularly on Google Drive until they started charging over 15 GB. Now, I am wise and filter all my photos and important files, messages, mails etc once a month and only transfers the most important to my external HD or sometimes cloud storage.

    Technology is less reliable when it comes to storing your important data. That is why I make sure to backup my files once in a week atleast.
