Backing_up_your_data.pngOur personal devices become a digital footprint of our entire lives. Everything from our documents and jogging route home to those photos of a friend’s dog looking guilty next to a broken biscuit tin is in them.

 

So it goes without saying how important it is to keep all that good stuff backed up and safe. It’s also a job that can feel a little intimidating, especially to those of us that don’t keep up with our digital housekeeping very regularly. So here on the Community we’ve gathered up a mix of useful Support posts, to help break down some options and methods for backing up your data.

I personally my outlook account to backup my contacts, mail and calendar items and onedrive for photo's. To be extra secure I also upload the photo's to my synology server (And make a backup from my office365 account with my synology server. 

 

A good backup gives peace of mind. One of the experiences everyone wishes to avoid is the experience of having a broken phone without a proper backup ^-^

 

Be safe, use protection, make a backup :smiling-face:

 

(Also, Samsung cloud is great! Smart Switch can also be used for quick backups).
