    Most times the value of the Mobile Gadget we have is not really a big deal, but the content we safe inside these gadgets may cost a lifetime to put together, just like the case of a photographer who saved all his projects in an SD card inserted in iPhone 6 that was later stolen, in this case the value of the iPhone is not the big deal, but the content inside the SD card cost him a lifetime to achieve and everything was taken away from him in a twinkle of an eye. But, this case could be averted if the necessary steps were taken.

    I doubt if most of us know we can save virtually all our files (Pictures, Videos, Documents, Contacts, etc.) on the internet and later access or retrieve it from any device anywhere in the world? This is possible in several ways, but for this tutorial I will be using Google service has case study.

    How to Backup and Retrieve Your Pictures, Videos and Document on the Internet

    There are quite numbers of companies that render this service for free, but my preferred choice is the one offered by Google because it is easy to use and access. Google provides each Gmail account you have with a free 15GB space (Upgradable) to save any digital files on the internet, Google called this service Google Drive.

    Google Drive is a safe place for all your files and puts them within reach from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. Once your files are saved on Google Drive you can easily invite others to view, edit or leave comments on any of your files or folders.

    Note: Files or Folder saved or backup on Google Drive can be viewed offline.

    If you want to backup files on your computer, go to your browser and type the following address:
    latestalert.com then login with your gmail account.
