When you're working across multiple devices that run on different operating systems like iOS and Android, a wireless device is your best option. No Internet connection, cables, or router is needed, plus you can connect to as many as 8 devices.
A good rule of thumb is to double your storage capacity based on the size of your data. This will allow you to store your current data as well as any files you may want down the road without taking up precious space on your device.
Wireless storage options would be a perfect fit for you. You can connect up to 8 devices, and you won't have to plug them all in to do it. Keep in mind the amount and type of data you have stored on your various devices. This will determine the capacity you should purchase: 64GB, 1TB, 2TB, etc.
It's important to get in the habit of backing up your data on regular basis. If you work on your computer daily, for example, then you should back up your files daily as well.
The length of time to back up depends on a couple factors:
• How much data do you have to back up?
• What types of data do you need to back up (Word documents versus video files)?
• What storage device are you using for your back up?
There are backup software options available that allow you to automate your backups – eliminating the need to manually back up. Western Digital, for example, includes this with most of their external hard drives.
In the event you don't have a recent backup of your files that you can work from, bring your hard drive or device to your Staples store, and one of our EasyTech associates will assess if your data can be recovered.
The most common type of backup drive, these devices provide a separate location for your data to live, and often include their own data encryption and backup scheduling software. Shop External Hard Drives

You've heard it dozens of times: "Don't forget to back up your data." Backing up your information can prevent data loss in the event of hard drive and/or device failure, theft or damage, giving you a little extra peace of mind. It's also easier than you might think.
You spill coffee on your laptop or your smartphone falls in the toilet. You try, but you can't access any of your information. That night, you toss and turn, mulling over how much you've just lost: files, contacts, family photos, research, financial data, passwords and so on.
