Hi Moka,

Backup to external media is important in that you can:

1. If you loose your file you are working on, you at least have some recent copies that aren't corrupt or lost, you need not to go back to the beginning but just get another copy.

2. If your PCs crash you can still have information hence boosts self confidence.

3. Portability is another important factor as you can move to another machine and still work with.

4. If data is affected on these external media you can still recover using specialized software.

5. They are less costly and lasts for sometime:the CDs goes for up to 10 years.

Thank you.
