3 Ways to Never Loose Data While Working from Home



As most of us have been forced to work from home due to the ongoing pandemic situation all over the world, a lot of things cannot be done via the usual conventional methods. When you go to a workplace, your data can be protected by the server through the local network. Nowadays you can also do it online if your company has set up the infrastructure to store data remotely in servers for you to work online and let you securely store your data online even while you work from home. However, if you are a freelancer, as you work from home, that may not be the case. Saving data on the hard drive is not really an ideal way of doing things as your hardware is always prone to failure and that may impose a threat to your data.

Here are a few tips to make sure that you never lose your data when working from home:

Freelancing is all about making more money using minimum resources and procuring a server to store data may cost you an amount. Options like Google cloud services and one drive are relatively cheap and easy to set up for small jobs. The advantage is that your data is centralised and you can access it from any device just like storing information or appointments on Google calendar which can be accessed from any device at any point of time, you just need to sync the account.

You may be storing the data on your system or the cloud, it does not matter, there is a possibility of data loss because of multiple reasons. Creating a backup not only lets you retrieve data in worst-case scenarios but let you be at peace. Remember to update the backup data daily or weekly based on your work type.

3. Set-up Security:

When you are working on your laptops and desktops at home, you may need to access various online sites. Virus and malware attacks are common, which is why install an anti-virus which is reliable and makes your online browsing safe. This will help a lot in securing your data. Also, you should also secure the online cloud or server you store your data on with tough passwords and two-step authentication, if possible, in order to make sure that no one else can access the data.
