At IT Care & Repair we obtain more jobs than we would like from customers desperately requiring data recovery from their non-functioning external hard drive. So many people believe that simply connecting and backing up on a portable hard drive is the complete solution to the safe storage.
Although this will work in most instances, their are many ways to maintain your external hard drive to ensure file integrity.
- Back up your files on disks or a USB flash drive to ensure that they will not be lost in the event that your external hard drive is accidentally damaged or destroyed.
- Avoid storing your external hard drive in an enclosed cabinet as this may cause your device to overheat.
