From the everyday user to the home office to the small business. It is crucial that you have a backup of your data, so in the case of hardware failure you can easily restore.

Loosing those precious memories and valuable files can cause not only a large amount of pain but can also hurt a business financially.

Luckily you do not need to spend a fortune on backup software. Veeam has provided a FREE product called Veeam Backup FREE for Windows that will take a backup of your system that can easily be restored and get you backup and running in no time.

Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE provides a simple solution for backing up Windows-based servers, desktops and laptops. With Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE, you can easily back up your computer to an external hard drive, NAS (network-attached storage) share or a Veeam Backup & Replication™ repository. And, should ransomware encrypt your files, your system fails to boot, your hard drive crashes or an important file gets corrupted or accidentally deleted, you can recover what you need in minutes — like it never happened.

To get started all you need is a couple of USB External Hard Disk Drives. Depending on the size of your computers Hard Drive this will depend on the size you need to get. With most new computers now having a Hard Drive size of about 500GB to 1TB. I would recommend you get a couple of 3TB or 4TB USB Drives.

You would then rotate and connect a different drive each day depending on the scheduling of the backup job. This will ensure that a clean backup is not connected to the computer. So if your computer gets infected with Ransomware or the backup files and USB drive become infected. You have clean backup you can restore from.
