If there is any sure way of protecting your files such as documents, pictures, music or videos against data theft, hardware failure, malware infection, data corruption etc, then it is regular backups. Keeping backups of your important files almost guarantees that no matter how you lose your data, you will always be able to recover it.
When making backups of your files, you should ensure two things – firstly you should store the backups on a removable drive that is not always connected to your PC and secondly, if possible, create another copy of the backups off site over the cloud storage. This way even in the case of physical damage to your PC (for example, in the event of fire or flood), you will still have your data safe over the cloud.
PicBackMan is a software that helps you store a backup of your files over not one but many cloud storage services. You can configure it to use many cloud storage services like OneDrive, Dropbox, pCloud or Google Drive. In addition, it can also use photo or video sharing sites like SmugMug, Google Photos, Picasa, Flickr, YouTube, Photobucket, Box, Instagram and more.
In case you are wondering why store your files over so many online services, it makes the backups much more robust and available all the time. At the same time, it comes with a De-Dupe module that allows you to find the duplicate files and get rid of them. It can be used to migrate your pictures and videos from one online service to another. You can also configure it to automatically upload your pictures or videos as soon as they are copied to a certain folder. Similarly, it can be schedules to perform the backups at specified date and time.
