Time to Archive
Just imagine!!! You wake up one morning on a lazy Sunday, after having your heavy brunch, you switch on your tab to log in to your personal mail account. Email - firstname.lastname@example.org (this is a work of fiction; names, characters, places and incidents either are products of the author’s imagination or used fictitiously. Any resemblance is entirely coincidental), Password – 9999988888, gosh you cannot recollect your password. Yes, you may not have given up in the beginning and you must have tried your luck with various permutations & combinations. However, sadly, it was an unfortunate day; you actually could not remember your password. You must be guessing, that I will be narrating you about Aamir Khan in Ghajini, about his amnesia and how he used to pen down all his necessary info over his body with a black marker (am not promoting it either) but I don’t wish to. This may not be a bad dream but it could actually happen to any one of us in reality. Nevertheless, we all know, where there is a will, there is a way. You can be relaxed (even if the dream comes true) and can take an easy breath, cause even if you have the Ghajini symptoms, your mails & important files will be safe and intact to be accessed anytime, while you are on the move.
Do or Die – Back-it-up: Do you ever realize that our personal emails have such importance in our life? (am sure you do, as your clients always poke you with those presentations and heavy mails) and to keep it secure and accessible all you need to do is to download the software “Mailstore Home 5” from mailstore.com and; it’s free of cost for home users. Once you download and configure it, all your data and important files become safe & secured in your personal hard disc drive forever. Its simple to install the software and it will do its job of making a copy of your entire mailbox, with the same files and folders in your hard disc. You can also use a USB drive to make a portable copy for your travel usage. With such a simple and easy to use tool, you can back up all your mails from various access points in a central archive. Having done this, you will never have the fear of losing emails again (even if you forget your password and you are not able to retrieve it) and can search all of your emails extremely fast. You can also reply or forward your archived emails by opening them with a single mouse click in your standard email program. There are couple of mail archive software available in the market & these works with almost all mail servers and if you feel the need, you can keep a backup of your office mails as well. Hence, keep synchronizing your back up at regular intervals, whenever your mailbox is upgrading or alternatively, you can keep the software running on your PC. So feel free to party hard on weekends as you can afford to have a hangover, giving your memory a little break.
