Keep An Extra Backup When Traveling

There are many reasons that having a backup for your data is a great idea. But this shouldn’t just apply when you’re at home, school or the office. It’s also important to have a reliable backup option when you’re traveling.

Whether you’re on the go for work or pleasure, a back up can save you from losing critical data such as presentations, important documents or even all of those new photos from your trip.

In a recent review, tech website Mac Performance Guide praised the performance of the OWC Mercury Envoy Pro EX as “outstanding” and noted its design “looks and feels like an Apple product.” And in an additional article on the site praising the Envoy Pro EX, there is a reminder of a good reason to be wary of the dangers to your data – aside from simply damaging your equipment or drive failure. Mac Performance Guide points out that when traveling, often the most likely “failure” of a drive isn’t failure at all – it’s theft.

To combat this, Mac Performance Guide recommends that you keep your backup in a safe location away from your laptop altogether. In fact, they point out that with the reliable Envoy Pro EX, you’re getting a drive so small and light that you can even carry along with you in your pocket, making it the “ideal” travel companion.

There are plenty of things to think about when you’re out on the road. Be sure to follow this sage advice from Mac Performance Guide to keep your Envoy Pro EX and your data inside of it safe and sound so you’ll have one less thing on your mind.

  • I really wish Time Machine allowed backups to a Mac OS X Server that isn’t on the local LAN.

    For those of us who would prefer to run our own internet backup. ;-)
