Lost Your Data? Email Yourself – Files At Your Fingertips

Most of us use disks, USB sticks or external hard drives to save our precious data.

At times, we leave it on the computer’s hard disk, but what happens if we lose the USB stick?  What happens if the computer itself crashes?

Email Yourself

There is one method of saving important files so they will be available to you, no matter where you are.

Many people are doing this.  You can usually access your work email through the internet, or sign up for a free address through sites, such as Google, Yahoo, or Hotmail.

Simply follow these steps:

  • Start a new email,
  • Add your email address in the ‘to’ line,
  • Attach your file,
  • Send,
  • You may be asked to add a ‘subject’ to the email.
  • Your file should be in your inbox.

All your files can be at your fingertips.
