    Nearly everybody uses cloud services these days, to some varying degree. It's almost unavoidable at this point; the moment you set up an Android phone, it prompts you to create a Gmail account in order to download apps, then proceeds to automatically back up your contacts and other information to the cloud. The same goes for Apple's iCloud service, and Microsoft's OneDrive as well. At any given moment, your phone could even be uploading your photos to the cloud, if you have such a feature enabled on your phone. Even if you try your best to avoid it, it's likely that you have some ...

    Running low on storage sucks. As I'm sitting typing this, I'm deleting files off of the external drive I store video on so I have room for new clips in the future, because I'm nearly out of storage. Nobody likes seeing the "low storage" warning on their devices, and it's even more frustrating when it happens on your smartphone, since there's already so little room on there to begin with.

    We've all been there. You pull your phone out of your pocket and notice something is off. Slide past the lock screen and you notice that, for whatever reason, your phone is back to factory settings. (For the record, I have had this happen with every mobile OS I have used to date.) Or maybe you have lost a phone. Having to go through the motions to get your phone back to how it should be is never a fun process. It's time consuming, and sometimes important information is gone forever, irrecoverable. Fortunately, there is a solution – precautionary steps that prevent sensitive or important ...
