Now that you saw the various
ways to safeguard your data, it is necessary to find the
support to store them.
As I said it before to you, it is strongly disadvised
placing its safeguards on the hard disk, even if you placed
them on a partition different of C because, if there is
a large crash landing on behalf of Windows and that it
refuses to start, you can perhaps say good-bye to your
The choice of the type and
the support of safeguard is not an easy choice. Which
investment want to be put to make safe your data? Which
quantity of data want to be safeguarded?
For the moment, there are
two categories of supports, one physical and the other
virtual one. In the physical category, I speak obviously
about the external mediums which will be classified by
order of storage capacity.
-) The first which comes
me to mind is of course the legendary diskette. But considering
his capacities, I will not extend above.
-) the LS 120, leave larger
diskettes having capacitées: 120 Mo of memories.
-) You have the possibility
of using keys USB. The storage capacities can vary between
128 Mo and 1 Go. Very practical keys to move data between
computers, especially within the professional framework.
On average the price of a key of 1 Go is of 130 €.
A little more expensive, Freecom USB Card which goes from
128 to 1 Go. 100 € for 128 Mo!
-) More used is of course
the support CD-ROM or CD-RW. Simple and rapid to be made,
the discs have a capacity of 700 Mo. The most interesting
remainder the cost of cost. Besides you can, thanks to
software of engraving as Néro to make CD multisessions
which allow d´enregistrer the data with the passing
days on the same CD in order to make profitable their
-) For a sum a little more
expensive, think of the DVD-R and DVD-RW, which them have
a capacity of 2.4 Go, to see even 4.7 Go for some. Much
more interesting to store of a blow of large files.
-) You can choose the disk
drives ZIP. The storage of the diskettes varies between
250 Mo and 20 Go (40 Go when the data are compressed!)....
The diskette which has this volume is the numerical cartridge
of safeguard IMATION SLR7 of a value of 100 €.
-) Comes finally the external
hard disks. There is no comparison with the other supports,
that it is by the quantity of data being able to be placed
or by the committed investment. We can say that it is
the last word to place its safeguards.
For the other category, I
speak about the transfers towards distant waiters, you
can place your files towards sites via the transfers of
Which is the interest to
safeguard these data towards sites?
Already the price, it is more economic all the same for
those which must often make safeguards. Moreover it is
a flexible method. Where that you are, it is enough for
you only to one connection to Internet to take files.
Is posed then the concern of the data confidentiality
on the distant waiters as well as the level of protection
ensured by the person receiving benefits. Initially, consult
the guarantees that they offer to you. They must cover
at the same time the disfonctionnements of a technical
nature and an absolute confidentiality by encoding of
data to 128 bits minimum. For the tariff, count 1.20 €
/mois for a space of storage of 10 Mo, 72 € /mois
for a storage of 8 Go and 240€ /mois for 40 Go.
for the distant waiters, NATSO BACKUP PRO for storages
of your safeguards via peripherals or the waiters.
A way also of storing its
data, lodgings at your FAI. But attention, contrary to
the suppliers of services of distant waiters of safeguards,
it has only "disadvantages there". You will
have a posting of advertising banners, the security of
the access to the files is not inevitably assured. There
is no interface Web to recover the data on another PC,
you are then obliged to resort to a software FTP.
Moreover, without you to alarm, the FAI say to you well
that space suggested is only to publish a personal Web
site, therefore are rather discrete. Publish only one
page to give the exchange. Prohibit the referencing of
part of the site to the robots of the search engines by
creating a textual file named robots.txt.
Type the line: Use-agent: *
In the line of in lower part: Disallow: /docs/
Docs is the name of the file containing your data to be
protected. You can have some several, then you will put
as many time the Disallow line: /docs/ that files by replacing
docs by docs2, docs3 so on.... The textual file will have
to be with the root of the site.
You here is now with the
current of all the methods to make safeguards like storing
them. Make in regularly and are methodical. Note the safeguards
which are on such or such other support.
