Posted on May 15, 2018 by Brithny to Todo Backup Resource

What's the best way to protect your data and avoid data loss? Why not backup and encrypt. You should back up all of your data files and encrypt the sensitive ones that you don’t want other people to read. Follow this guide, backup and encrypt your data in Windows 10 Now.

Why do we back up and encrypt data?

Back up and encrypt. Those are vital habits for everyone in our digital society. Without a backup, each and every document, spreadsheet, photo, and video on your hard drive could disappear in seconds. And without encryption, your sensitive files could fall into the wrong hands, resulting in identity theft and other disasters.

In a word, you need to back up all of your files. You also need to encrypt the ones containing sensitive information. 

We don't use Windows 10’s built-in tools, because Windows Backup doesn’t support encryption on its own. You have to enable a separate encryption layer (like BitLocker) to store the backup in an encrypted destination. Unfortunately, BitLocker is a block-level encryption technology so it can’t be enabled on the network location.
