Physical vs. Cloud Data Storage


One of the most important things you can do for your data is simply to back it up regularly. So many common issues can be avoided by regular backups, and it only takes one malfunction to lose years of critical data.

When it comes to backing up your data, you essential have two main choices: physical storage such as an external hard drive, or cloud storage, which if you are a Mac user, can be had cheaply and conveniently through Apple’s iCloud storage service.

A physical backup solution has the benefit of keeping your data on your own equipment, as well as avoiding a subscription or service fee for continued storage of your data. On the other hand, iCloud storage doesn’t require you to buy any physical hardware, and can be synced across your devices, including if you upgrade to a new Mac.
