Backup — a backup process, so that you can put things in order in documents, photographs, letters and private files with important notes. Fortunately or unfortunately, digital information accumulates more and more, but garbage it is not always the case. From garbage can be gotten rid of in a jiffy, and what to do with the data that may be required after some time?

ICloud, ITunes

Only two sites, and your data can rest on the computer (in the case of ITunes), or specially designated server, Apple ICloud. The advantage of cloud server is that it makes a complete copy of the entire system, which if necessary you can always restore.

The iCloud service can be accessed from multiple types of devices running the following operating systems:

iOS (since version 5.0) OS ⅹ (from Lion) and Windows (with Vista).

Each tenant on the network iTunes Store a personal identifier and access to data. Now this amount is equal to 5 GB. With ITunes it’s a bit different: your data can be stored, but directly on the computer.

Android also does not stand still and strives to improve following Apple. Samsung and Huawei offer similar copying scheme: the manufacturer has carried out necessary improvements and proposes to make a mold of data in the same way as Apple.

Google Photos and

Google Photos. If you don’t want to pay for additional space in the cloud (over 5 GB), you’ll need separate areas for photos, which occupy the main place. A good free alternative offers Google Photos. If you compress photos up to 12 megapixels, will be able to upload to the cloud any number of images. In most cases, you do not need to perform additional actions, as 12 megapixel — standard size. The app is in the timing system and keeps track of when it was flooded with pictures. There you can navigate timeline quickly find the images you need to see pictures in turn. Those photos that you have already filled in the cloud, you can remove from photo gallery with one touch.

The advantage is that it is possible not only to save and edit documents, and shared. A feature of the system is a reference to the Microsoft products. However, it can be installed on a laptop, tablet or smartphone and to use the basic kit absolutely free.

Yandex Disk

Another option for storage of documentation — Yandex Disk. This area is reminiscent of Google Drive, only in a minimal format. It’s not well suited for collaboration on the project, but it is acceptable for storage and classic editing. The service is free or for a small fee if you need all functions related to copying or file storage.

Cloud technology, in this case, working quietly all applications work without requiring additional steps.
