Tip of the Week: Back-up all organizational files
Holly Ross does a great job of sharing practical insights in “The Technology Foundation: Hardware and Software,” in which appears as Chapter 14 in Nonprofit Management 101. She shares, ”Most people view backing up as insurance for extreme situations like natural disasters, but backing up is most important in many day-to-day situations.
What would you do if you left your laptop in the back of a cab? You can back up your data and files via hardware in your own office using CDs, DVDs, tapes, or you can choose an online backup service that will automatically store your files online for you like Dropbox. Whichever option you choose, it’s essential that you set each computer in your network to back up automatically and test regularly to ensure that files are easily accessible.”
