People use the
computer for lots of things, be it for leisure, business, arranging finances
and all. One advantage a computer gives us is the ability to store several data
in one computer. However, if you really are unlucky, your laptop could end up
crashing taking with it the important information you have stored inside. This
causes panic and confusion to the user but there is a way to avoid losing all
your files. Continue reading to get details about internet storage and what it
can do for you.
Users are fortunate
enough that there are now these so-called online storage bins. Digital storage
companies provide a means of security to computer users all over the world by
duplicating their files and storing them on a password-protected site that the
user alone can access. The beauty of this is when computers crash and we need
to retrieve our files, everything are safely backed up. Fortunately, this is
what online storage can provide.
Some people don’t see
the importance of online storage but if you think about it, you wouldn’t want
to lose your pictures, videos, word files, power point documents, and all the
programs that you spent lots of times just because your computer
Online storage bins
are convenient but the storage companies actually charge for their services.
It’s a relatively small price to pay considering that your files might be
priceless for you. If you think that it’s expensive, just sit back and think of
all those times you spent to get those 100 page reports done and then try to
decide if it’s worth it.
After you have
successfully subscribed as a member of the online storage group, there will be
walkthroughs that would teach you how to go about with uploading and
duplicating your files. All online storage companies work the same way, you
will be asked to download a program from their site and it will automatically
scan your files, duplicating and sending them back to your home base. You do
not need to be a geek to figure this out. They even have tutorials for you to
The whole process of
transferring and copying files may take a few hours to days depending on the
size of your files. You don’t need to worry though as you won’t even notice

If you are like me, you are totally dependent on technology. Don’t take away my cell phone or other electronic devices, because I simply do not want to unplug, ever for any reason. Unfortunately for me, I have a few over zealous outdoorsy types in my household. They hanker to get back to nature and avoid electronics at every turn, while I long for my Kindle and other creature comforts. Inevitably it seems that we end up camping at least four times a year.
What is a city slicker like me to do?
Find a way to survive
my family camping and backpacking trips with going crazy. There is no denying
that I get a bit cranky without the comforts of home. I can deal with a shower
every few days, even if it is not particularly hot, cook over a campfire with
the best of them and trek through the wilderness, but do not ask me to go
without my iPad, cell and Kindle for any length of time less you risk my
Last year I got a
Votiac Systems Off-Grid Backpack for my birthday and have never looked back.
This is an ingenious invention which has made charging electronic necessities
of life a piece of cake while roughing it. When car camping, having the ability
to recharge is a great option.
Of course, if you are
an avid reader like I am, you will need a good light source to read by. It is
easy enough to get a propane lantern if you are not backpacking or hiking, but
if a bit further out reading is usually not going to happen after sundown.
Every backpacker knows that weight is the last thing you want in you pack, but
some luxuries are a necessity. I was lucky enough to find several hand crank
LED flashlights that weighed less than 6 ounces and gave 30 minutes of light
for just 1 minute of time spent cranking. Surprisingly, there were several
models that retailed for under $10 each. I finally decided on a really small
one that was only 4 inches by 2 inches and weighed very little. The light is so
bright that we don’t even use the lanterns when we car camp anymore, just
I also have added a JJ
Cole Essentials outdoor blanket to the things I must take when we car camp.
Because one side of the blanket is waterproof, it is useful to bring along for
any number of unforeseen needs. I use it for a table cover when our picnic
table is damp and I’m using my electronic devices, as a picnic blanket or to
cover the seats in the car when the rest of my crew gets of the trail after
being out backpacking for several days. This is one item that is compact, light
weight and very handy in any number of situations.… Read More
