Dave of Dave´s Helpline talks about reliable computer backups

Dave of Dave´s Helpline talks about reliable computer backups

What is a backup?

Hard drives store your data magnetically. The surface of the hard disk is made of aluminum and the data is stored and indexed magnetically. Generally speaking a backup can be any extra copy of your data and include documents, photos and music etc., along with your Contacts and Favorites etc. Hard drives are very volatile and subject to electrical shocks and shortages that occur often. Such electrical issues can de-magnetise a disk and data can be lost. After frequent shocks or shortages a hard disk can fail and seize up, and again the data is lost.

If you only have one copy of your data, you are asking for data loss. This is a fact of computing.

What should I backup?

A proper backup should include other things such as your system files so that in the event of a crash, you can get back up and running as close to the good state of your system as possible.

What is the best way to back up my data?

A professional backup should use a system called an Image backup.

This means the software used, makes an ‘image’ of your system at that point -and then stores it.

That image includes every part of the system including log in details and your personal configuration of the system.

What do I need to buy to get started?

A good backup does not reside on your system hard drive. It should be on an external source of storage. I recommend a USB external hard drive. Smaller memory sticks and DVD disks are limited in capacity. Also a good backup system is done regularly perhaps daily, by a scheduled process. That way it becomes routine and automatic, not manual. It’s so easy to forget to do it.

A good external hard drive should be around 1 TB in capacity or larger. This allows for several backups to be stored for greater security. Good backup software will backup ‘incrementally’ so that only new data is backed up in addition to what is already done. Typically a Windows PC can backup in about 20 minutes the whole system from the previous days’ backup.

The best software for automatic backup is without doubt Acronis True Image. There are some free software programs out there too that are fairly good but not as easy to use and navigate. Considering your data is precious then spending on decent backup software is a good investment.

There are services available that offer backup to the cloud, which stores your data on internet rented space. This can be useful but bear in mind that your network (router and data allowance) is in use for the whole backup period -at the speed of your network. Also your data is then only accessible via your password and account being kept up to date and paid. Space online is not always cheap. Having your backups physically to hand is vital when it comes to restoring that data later on should issues arise.

OptimaSit latest news update!

OptimaSit latest news update!

Hi my name is Bob!



I’m the new kid on the block and let me tell you, I’m excited to be here! So here’s my story…hope you like and share it with all your friends and connections…

My creators at thought it was a good idea to bring me to life just now that we are coming out of the last crisis…and yes, I must admit: great timing!

Now…let me tell you…the guys inside this new organisation are awesome, the idea is brilliant and practice shows it works! So what’s new? Besides my appearance, cute if I may say so, stands a group of very motivated and talented folks, each specialised in their domain.

You probably know that whenever the guys at get their head around a project, they leave little to chance. Now imagine combining the strength of a team of 23 professionals in marketing & technology, join up with a veteran in real estate development and architecture, just at the time the market is saturated with properties everybody sells and often are not what buyers are looking for. Now the real estate guys here have secured a series of exclusive properties and sites nobody has their hands on.  Combining the strengths of both teams, developers and agents get their hands on absolutely marvellous product, the latest and greatest technology tools generating own-branded professional materials and websites only available to the larger players normally, and a comprehensive support team that takes care of ALL marketing, viewings and sales activities in a professional manner.

Years of experience from both companies show that the commercialisation cost of these products is significantly lower, the turnaround times much faster and the profits up to 35% higher than any other method available. is also the company who helped the 200M € investment fund RCS (Real Capital Solutions) become successful with its approach and technology.

So why do I tell you all this?

We all know someone in real estate…from developers, builders, property owners or agents. It just wouldn’t be right if you would not let them have a look at this. Unless of course you want to keep it all to yourself and benefit from what other may not know about (yet).

I’ve put together a little video for you which might help getting the picture…after all, images speak a million words (and I feel I spent close to that amount here…sorry!).

Just watch this below and enjoy:
