I had a very, very painful experience recently. Grab your tissues. .
I LOST ALL MY FILES. 😢 😭 .
Recently, I had a system malfunction on my phone which led to many of my most important apps like Whatsapp, Notepad and Trello being uninstalled. .
These apps deleted along with the files within containing month-long content, drafts, writings, images/screenshots, downloads, proposals, contacts, etc. .
Funny thing is that I assumed they backed up automatically but I was wrong. I relied on the fact that the apps were secure and I failed to duplicate the files.
Please don't be like me... ALWAYS back up your files on different locations, whether online or offline. It could be Google Drive or Gmail or on the Cloud but please DUPLICATE your files. Always have a copy saved somewhere else. .
Back up your chats, your apps/softwares, your pictures, your videos, your documents, your contacts/business cards, your content, your articles and stories, your ideas, your business plans, your emails and even your social media pages. .
If you have no idea how to save your files on any of these platforms or need help with backing up your data, send us a DM. We know all the ins and outs of this now. 😁 .
I hope this helps someone. Have you ever experienced this? .
Small businesses can face IT problems that can seriously slow down their business or even threaten the security of sensitive information! Here are 2 common IT problems all small businesses face:
Check out 2 of the most common computer and IT issues that every small business faces… and what you can do to fix them when they happen to you.
1. Lost Email Data
If you use an email program at home or in your small business, you may be setup to use POP and SMTP by default. This simply means that when your email client (Outlook or Windows Live Mail) downloads your email, it may not be leaving a copy on the server. So, if your computer ever stops working, you could lose all of that data unless you made a backup.
POP and SMTP email settings also transmit email without encryption and do not synchronize across devices, which can become frustrating very quickly.
The Fix: Use A Cloud-Based Email Service
Leaving a copy of your emails on the server provides your business with an added layer of backup security for important data and messages.
By using services like Google Apps or AppRiver, a copy of your email, contacts, and calendar are securely transmitted and stored on secure servers. This also allows you to download or view everything on any device and have your activity synchronized automatically.
2. Missed System Updates
By default, Windows updates are set up to be downloaded and installed every morning at 3am, presuming your computers are turned on at that early hour. However, if you’re shutting down your computer each night (and you should be) they’re not booted up when those updates come through. That means those updates aren’t downloaded and applied unless you make the conscious effort to do them yourself—and most people don’t.
The Fix: Set Updated Reminder Notifications
You can access your Windows Update settings in the Control Panel, and set them to always notify you to download install them. This way, you’ll get reminders when it’s time to install a security update. Otherwise, your network admin can also take care of this for you.

There’s an old saying that business owners responsible for data backup fall into two categories — those who have lost data and those who will.
There are a lot of ways that data can be lost. Accidents happen, computers are damaged, employees turn over, and natural disasters often occur with little warning.
Ransomware is continually in the news, with new strains entering businesses in clever new ways to encrypt and demand ransom for the hijacked files. It’s understandable that data backup planning is put off in businesses already stretched thin, but the modest amount of time needed to adopt an effective backup plan is tiny compared to the weeks and months needed to recover from a serious loss.
A data backup plan has to be part of the standard operating procedures for not just enterprises, but businesses of any size.
