The inevitable finally happened to me last week. I saw it happen to coworkers around me, but I always thought to myself it would never happen to me. As the months and years went by, I never had problems until that fateful day, January 11th 2012. I came in with presentations scheduled, meetings to attend, everything saved to my laptop. I sat down at my desk, powered up the computer, went for a cup of coffee, and when I returned, there it was staring me right in the face. It was the blue screen of death.
As I sat there in shock and horror, I began wondering “How I am going to present without slides”? My entire career was on that laptop, and I never thought I needed to back up every file to a flash drive. Not only did I just lose my career information, I had a presentation in the afternoon that had taken me three weeks to prepare.
Luckily after a few minutes of panic, I realized that I use a backup service called Mobile Information Protection. Mobile Information Protection automatically backs up my PC allowing restores on demand. This is a great service that reduces the risk of losing my important corporate information and valuable presentations. It provides a fast, automatic, and transparent solution for backing up and restoring data on desktops and laptops. Also, if my laptop or desktop becomes lost, stolen, or damaged, Mobile Information Protection provides me with the ability to restore data files such as PST, desktop icons, to a new computer or hard drive after the operating system has been installed.
