How and Why To Backup Your Hard Drive
Tuesday, February 9, 2021
Speaker: Judy Taylour

How and Why To Backup Your Hard Drive

Don’t lose any or all of your important data: documents, photos, music, or videos.

  • Your computer could be hit by a virus.                                                                     
  • Ransomware could hold your files hostage.
  • You should be prepared for a natural disaster.
  • Hard drives sometimes fail.

We will look at the ins and outs of backing up your hard drive and your smartphones during this presentation.

Judy Taylour is a 33-year member of the Santa Clarita Valley Computer Club. She is chair of several APCUG (an international organization of technology and computer user groups) committees, and she is a member of their Speaker’s Bureau. She has taught adult education computer classes for 22 years. She’s a firm believer in life-long learning.
