Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media used to retain digital data. In addition to local storage devices like CD and DVD readers, hard drives and flash drives, solid state drives can hold enormous amounts of data in a very small device. Cloud services and other new forms of remote storage also add to the capacity of devices and their ability to access more data without building additional data storage into a device.

That depends on your backup software.  It's not necessary to backup.  If you restored the data drive and not the VSS backup drive, then you wouldn't have VSS copies from the past.

The business world is becoming increasingly integrated with tech. It’s not just for a select few anymore — but what about if you have a small business? It may be easier than you think to integrate technology into your small business, and it’s likely to be worth the investment.

Many businesses neglect disaster recovery and treat it as an after-thought. I can tell you first hand that data will be lost, hard drives die, servers will be hacked, and careless (or malicious) employees can ruin your data.

HDR photos are the same size as a normal photo, they're just enhanced so they shouldn't affect storage unless you keep the original as well.

Even selecting optimized photo roll will use space on your phone.  It's just that the phone will modify the size of the cache according to how much space there is available on your device.  e.g. on my Android, Google Photos has a 500mb cache.

Iphone. Whatsapp backup. Google. Free and unlimited media storage.
By installing Google Photos on your iphone, you will be able to backup all your iphones media, including your Whatsapp Folder/Album (Photos, Videos, Voicenotes, GIF's).  

You wont need to buy extra storage for Google Drive, becuase Google Photos has an option for unlimited storage, so this does count against your default Google Drive space.

If you choose to backup your Whatsapp media (Photos, Videos, Voicenotes, GIF's) this way, you can still backup your chat database to icloud, in your whatsapp settings, you can choose to backup chats without videos, so you wont use up your up your icloud storage space, by duplicating videos already backed up with Google Photos.

Google Photos also has an assitant to help you remove media on your device that has already been backed up, this is optional, but helpfull if you need to recover storage space on your device. You will need a data connection or wifi access to access your media files, or just choose for offline access for selected media files.

Guys, if you'd like to suggest alternatives, please do.  but simple comments without any explanation, like "use robocopy" is not helping anyone.  I acknowledge robocopy... but it's just one way that is not perfect.  And Method 3 covers robocopy and other third party utilities.  If you think Robocopy (or GS Rich Copy 360) is best, PLEASE, provide a reasoned comment to explain why so that I and others can understand.  Explain why they are the perfect utility for all circumstances - or acknowledge the circumstances that aren't good... or better still, right your own article and I don't object a link to it as a comment here.

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Each year, investment in cloud platforms grows more than 20% as an increasing number of companies begin to transition to virtual storage and operations. Moving to remote cloud servers comes with many benefits, including three important factors needed as a company grows: scalability, shareability, and a larger communication scope. Cloud operations remove the worry of updating servers if storage needs change or the company expands and moves. Files and documents are also accessible from any location and any device with the right log-in information. 

The rise in popularity of SaaS and PaaS services has a lot to do with new, innovative companies offering customizable solutions to everyday corporate and technology needs, such as lead generation maintenance, process funnels, and payment chains. This sudden popularity, however, not only receives attention from investors and developers, but hackers.

As with any cybercriminal focus, cloud platforms are seen as a land of opportunity because the additional service expands the area available for a hacker’s reach. Before, the only hacking portal may have simply been a server within the company walls. Now, in addition to that server, there are payment processes and client lists lingering in the cloud. When you consider that in 2017 we may see 73%

When we purchase storage, we typically are advertised storage of 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and so on. However, when you actually install it into your computer, your 500GB HDD will actually show up as 465GB. Why?
It has to do with the way people and computers use numbers and do math.

Hello
 Manual techniques mentioned above are the best wy to remove Outlook's Duplicates.I tried all the manual techniques to remove Outlook's duplicates, But unfortunately, i could remove only a few duplicates outlook's files as there are lots of PST files and damn big attachment in my Outlook  and
So, left with no choice I used SysInfo Outlook duplicate Remover. With this tool, I managed to remove all Duplicates in a single run.

This is so misleading.

I want to delete actual duplicates, not redundant emails from conversations. By an actual duplicate I mean an exact duplicate - as if you copied and pasted an email into the same folder.

Outlook Clean up function seems to only work on redundant emails - those are emails from a conversation where the Reply includes the information from the previous email.
The Modifying View settings method also only works on emails that aren't exact duplicates. Exact duplicates have the same modified date and time.

I work in an office where we are not allowed to have third-party add ons and am dependent on MS for solutions.

Is there any way without add ons to remove exact duplicates from Outlook 2013?
