THIS ALL WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO PREVENT LOSS OF YOUR PRECIOUS DATA
- Save data on partition other than the partition containing operating system
- Use an anti-virus software and keep it updated
- Practice disk maintenance
TAKING BACKUP IS THE BEST UNBEATABLE OPTION
Backup simply means you are keeping at least one copy of the original data, but in the other disk.( do not delete original files ). Always remember to give short file names. Long file names creates problems during copying
Anti-virus software update is necessary as it contains information about new viruses for removing the same.
