Between your computer, tablet and phone, think about how much data you create daily — files you may not even realize are important until something unimaginable happens. All it takes is one nasty virus or power crash, and you could lose it all. You could end up doing something as simple as losing your phone or having water damage that makes your device inoperable. Who hasn’t dropped their smartphone in the sink, tub or pool on accident?
You might be thinking, “No big deal, I back everything up on the cloud.” But, if you’ve listened to Kim’s show or visited Komando.com long enough, you know cloud storage options like iCloud, OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox fall short. Sure, they’re a convenient way to store files and access them from multiple devices. If the worst happens, though, restoring your files onto each of your devices would be a complete nightmare! Not to mention all those files you thought you’d saved but actually didn’t.
This is why we often stress the importance of having a solid backup service. But there’s still one area most backup services struggle with: In many cases, even when “unlimited storage” is advertised, your account only covers data from a single device.

Obviously, backing up a single device doesn’t cut it anymore. What about your phone? Your tablet? Your laptop? Your hard drive? And what about the devices for each of your family members?
