IT Services Tip: Starting the Year with a Full Backup
The beginning of the year is a good time to make sure you have a backup of all your important files. Using a flash drive or external hard drive is a simple and inexpensive way to back up your files and ensure you won’t lose anything important if you encounter a problem. After completing your backup, be sure to physically separate the backup device from the computer it has backed up so that your data is kept in two different locations.
One way to ensure your Autosoft FLEX DMS data is consistently and securely backed up throughout the year is to invest in either our Cloud Backup or Business Continuity services. If your dealership utilizes an on-premises server, either of these services will provide an easy, automated, and secure way to back up your business-critical DMS data and eliminate the time required for manual backups, as well as the potential for human error.
Visit autosoftdms.com/cloud-backup for more information, or call our sales team at 844.888.8200.
No matter what method you choose, this January is a good time to make sure your data is backed up.
