As the new school year approaches, make a plan to back up all your important files. The University of Chicago offers several online file storage services such as Box, Google Drive, and OneDrive. View the UChicago file storage matrix document to compare these services and choose the best one for your needs. Depending on the storage service you select, you can work directly on your files online or have them sync so the latest version of your document is available online.

It’s a good strategy to also have an offline backup tool, such as an external hard drive or flash drive, to make sure your files are accessible in more than one place. Don’t forget to back up your mobile device as well!
