Though an external hard drive comes as a first option to pick for a backup device, many people still backup their data in an internal hard drive of their computer. Here are the pros and cons of backing up data in an internal hard drive that could tell if it’s safe for your valuable data or not.
Convenient: Creating the data backup in an internal disk is the most convenient way to save it for later purposes. At least you don’t have to plug in and plug out an external drive each time you want to backup data.
Restore them easily: Whenever you accidentally delete, erase or modify your files, you will have the ease to restore them on the device.
Failure: The worst effect of storing backup data in your internal hard drive is experiencing failure. If your device fails or dies due to any reason, your data will be gone with the backup.
Malware: If the computer once gets affected by any malware attack, it would affect the backup files also, which won’t help you restore any data.
Natural disaster: Be it any disaster like fire or water damage or data theft, you would always fail to save your data or the backup created in the same internal hard drive.
Apart from the convenience and ease of restoration, it’s all mentioned how risky it could be to store the entire backup of your files in an internal hard drive. Storage devices are vulnerable to numerous failures and damages that render data inaccessible. So it is always best to seek a different storage device to create and save a backup of your valuable files.
