Moving all your photos and documents onto a USB Stick or Drive is backing up..
This is one I hear on-line and in my shop many times a week. “Yes I backed up my photos, here they are on this stick. But I can’t access them anymore, something is wrong with the stick.” This is where I say, but that’s ok, just copy them back from your computer. Oh No I only back them up onto my stick…… NOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Dropbox, OneDrive, iCloud, and all the others are CLOUDS. They are usually large servers, or in fact many large servers (farms) that you can create a secure account. You can then upload your data into e.g. Photos, documents. The advantage of this is that you can access your data on multiple devices and from pretty much anywhere in the world.
