Have you ever lost your precious data? It’s almost always like a disaster. In this information-packed session, you will learn about the basic approaches to data backup, find out how to protect your data and avoid losing them, and get to know some applications and services that will help you in your efforts. In the first part, I will speak about different types of data backup with regard to their availability, cost, security, convenience and reliability. I will also present a few suggested scenarios for different types of users. The last part of the session includes examples of setting up different backup solutions. The topic will be discussed specifically from a translator's point of view, focusing on issues we all have to face. It does not require any in-depth computer knowledge.
