    Regularly backup your files . If a
    virus infects your operating system, it's often necessary to completely wipe your computer and reinstall programs. One can also use an external hard drive. Store files in the cloud. As well as Controlling access to your files. And most importantly you have to encrypt your hard drive.

    Thanks for your insights. So, do I need to purchase for a hard drive? How many bytes should I purchase?

    I answered in the poll that it depends. Many of my files are protected behind first a pin to even access my computer. If someone can't figure that out, they aren't able to even log into my computer. Second, many of my files are protected by other files, as well as encryption. I also have backups saved on hard drives and private emails. Overall, in general the protection of one's computer depends solely on the person for the most part. The next part are the measurements they take for those protections.
