Are You Prepared for a Data Disaster?
(What Happens if Your Hard Drive Goes BOOM!)
What happens when your hard drive crashes, or you accidentally delete an important file? What if your computer is lost or stolen? Are your files safe in the event of fire, hurricane, flood, or a computer virus?
Not long ago, the unthinkable happened to me... a virus wiped out my entire hard drive! As a computer pro, I thought I had all the bases covered -- security updates, firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware -- but a "drive-by virus" zapped my hard drive, shut down my computer and rendered it unable to start.
It looked like a total loss, and it would have been devastating. But I had a backup. So I fired up my backup software, and it restored everything, just like it was before the virus hit.
Are you prepared for a data disaster? If you're not absolutely sure, I recommend that you read my new ebook:
Everything You Need to Know
You've spent years creating the information on your hard drive. It holds everything -- your email, recipes, love letters, tax returns, family photos, videos, and stuff that you've downloaded from the Internet.
What would you do if you lost everything on your computer, your email or your mobile phone? The baby pictures, your extensive music collection, and the novel you've been working on? What if you lost your financial records... and you got audited? Would your business survive?
Have you thought about the data on your mobile gadgets? If your phone was stolen, or went through the wash, just imagine losing your address book, photos, apps and text messages.
And here's something else to consider. More and more, our lives are moving online. What would you do if your email, or your Facebook profile got wiped out by a hacker, an angry ex, or a data center breach?
Here's Some Good News...
All of that might sound terribly depressing, but it doesn't have to be that way. If you prepare in advance for a data disaster, you can get EVERYTHING back and move on quickly.
In the all-new 3rd Edition of "Everything You Need to Know About Backups", you'll discover:
- How to make sure ALL your important files are backed up in a safe place.
- Where to get FREE backup software, and how to simply "set it and forget it."
- Online Backup - the pros and cons, free alternatives, and your privacy and security concerns.
- There's even a chapter with resources to help you recover deleted files when there is no backup!
- And as I mentioned, not all your important data is on your computer. Some of it lives on the Internet, so I've got tips on how to back up your Email, Facebook, and Twitter info.
- You'll also find helpful tools for backing up your phone, which contains your address book, text messages, apps and other data.
The latest edition includes updates for Windows 8 and smartphones, the latest hardware and software for backups, more options for cloud storage, backing up your social media data, and LOTS more. You'll find something valuable in each of the 29 chapters.
As publisher of the Internet Tourbus, and creator of the AskBobRankin tech support website, I've heard many sad stories from people who lost it all -- because they didn't have a backup. You already know you need to back up your important information. This ebook provides you with the knowledge, skills and tools to get it done! Everything is explained in plain English, with no geek-speak or technobabble.

BONUS REPORT #2: How to Make FREE Phone Calls
When I was a kid, I discovered a secret about pay phones. By taking a paper clip and connecting the
mouthpiece with the metal surface of the phone's coin box, I could get a dial tone and make calls for
free. That was over 35 years ago Ã¢â‚¬â€œlong before the Internet --and I'm sure that the few remaining pay
phones that still work no longer have this flaw.
Almost everyone hates the phone company. I think it's because, deep down, we feel like we're getting
ripped off, and we wish that we could make free phone calls. And maybe even eliminate our
dependence on the phone company altogether. This book will show you how to do exactly that,
without breaking any laws. :-)
This ebook will teach you how to make free phone calls over the Internet using a standard telephone handset, a computer equipped with a microphone, or a mobile phone. You'll be introduced to a variety
of gadgets, software and web-based services that make it happen. If that sounds geeky, don't worry, everything will be in plain English!
