You may be using computer and various other electronic gadgets and may be facing different problems some time due to loss of data so, you may have understood the importance of back up. But, one thing to be considered is that nowadays your data are stored somewhere else on the web, on smartphones so, you may be wondering to make your data secure.
So, here are some tips for you to back up your data easily.
Q1. How to back up Gmail?
A: You’ll want to use an email programme such as Outlook or download a free email client such as Thunderbird, and then set up Gmail so that you keep an extra copy of your mail on your personal computer. Here’s how.
First, get your email programme set up. Thunderbird (http://bit.ly/2zxpYm) is a good choice, and it’s free.
Then sign in to Gmail. Click the options button in the upper right-hand corner, and select Mail Settings from the submenu. From the resulting Settings page, click the ‘Forwarding and POP/IMAP’ link.
Then select the radio button labeled ‘Enable POP for all mail (even mail that’s already been downloaded).’ While you’re on this screen, click the ‘Configuration instructions’ link to learn how to configure your email programme. Finally, click the Save Changes button.
Now follow the instructions for setting up your email programme so that it can download your Gmail messages. Once downloaded, the messages are essentially backed up. You can back up your local computer, too, however, and have a third backup of your mail.
Q2. How to back up data on Facebook and Twitter account?
A: If you’re an avid user of either of these social networking sites, there’s good reason to want to back them up: You probably have lots of information there, and if your account were ever frozen or lost, you’d lose that data. Or you might simply lose track of what you want to find as the new information comes streaming in.
For Facebook, there’s an Archive Facebook plugin (http://bit.ly/e5wAOR) for Firefox that does a good job of saving your Facebook photos, messages, friends list, notes, and more to your hard drive.
Or you could turn to SocialSafe (http://www.socialsafe.net), which will back up both Facebook and Twitter.
Another, similar tool is Backupify (http://www.backupify.com), which bills itself as an all-in-one archiving and restoration tool for Facebook, Twitter, Google Apps, and Picasa. The free personal backup option of Backupify gives you 2 gigabytes of storage and makes automatic, weekly backups.
