Are Your Computer Backup Files Safe?

Computer Data Backup Tip:

Do you have an automatic or ongoing backup schedule to an external USB harddrive?
Your backed up files on that external USB harddrive could be exposed to virus infection or ransom-ware demands!
While having the external drive always connected is convenient in some ways, for best data protection, I recommend that you know how to remove/disconnect the external USB backup drive after backups so your backup data is not in danger! You should also have at least two rotating backup drives for even better backup security! By having two drives, you can rotate your backups off-site in case of fire, water damage, theft, etc.
