Hard Drive Enclosure

by : Manjula

Now a days, storing valued data and securing them from online hackers and Trojan horses is becoming very important. People store datas like financial information, personal photos, videos and other sensitive data to their Pcs. But when accessing the internet they face a lot of spyware programs trying to penetrate their firewall and access their personal data.

One such incident happened to me when my system happened to act crazy. Many of my software applications started opening and closing on their own. Then my Mozilla Firefox started opening strange web pages which just had some numbers and some text which made no sense.

I was not ready for a system breakdown. I unplugged the broadband connection and shut the systems power. Few of my sensitive files which had some valid information did not respond and showed some error report. Luckily I always make backups and hardly loose any information.

My firewall was the recent version and still I had a threat from some kind of spyware. I dint want this to happen to me again. So I always make it a point to have backup files just in case of emergencies and store them in hard disk drive enclosures.

You can also fit your old hard disk in to a hard disk enclosure with less amount of money spend to it. It is so handy you might want more than one.

It also has some valuable uses like :

&bull Moving large files from one pc to the other.
&bullBacking up data and re getting files from unbooted drives.
&bullExpanding you valuable storage space.
&bullIt can also act as a storage tank for your data while you reinstalling your OS.
