Have a cyber hygiene practice in place with Desktop Central’s folder backup configuration


Let’s face it! Data loss can happen to anyone. You may have an excellent hardware but one day they might wear out and you’ll end up losing your data. Besides, the internet harbors exclusive potential threats to your data because trojans and viruses don’t just steal your data, they tend to erase it. In case of a ransomware attack, a hacker injects virus and encrypts your data, making it useless. For retrieval of your data, you’ll have to pay a huge ransom. But if you have a current backup of your data, this is less of a worry. Data backup is the most important cyber hygiene practice.

What is folder backup?

Folder backup is the process of copying the data from the source folder to a destination folder for data backup in case of equipment failure or catastrophe. In the world of computers, it is always better to be prepared for the worst. Data loss can be caused by many things ranging from computer viruses to hardware failures.

What data should I backup?
