The world of data is ruled by memory, in other words, if it doesn’t exist it didn’t happen. That’s a fact of life. Consider that our history is written by words. Without the written word we can only surmise what might have been, make conjectures and suppositions, but we cannot create truth without facts, and facts are only what has been recorded in writing or in graphics such as photos and video.
Since the storing of data is crucial for our life and livelihood, we need to make sure we always have a backup of any data we decide to keep. Photos, documents, calendars, videos, you name the data set, it needs to be saved, stored and preferably backed up. In other words, make a copy and store it in a separate location.
Most mobile operating systems come with various options for backup and storage, where cloud Is the most popular. However, if you own a PC, or another mobile device, or a memory stick, you might want to keep a physical copy by your side at all times. Also, when changing mobile devices, you might want to transfer all your data to the new one. This might be simple if you have both, but if you don’t, you will need to rely on your backup source, if you have one.
There are a number of data transfer apps on the internet to choose from, and one of these that sticks out is MobiMover 4.0 from EaseUS.
EaseUS is an Apple iOS data transfer program that comes as a much easier to manipulate model than the clumsy Apple iTunes, and yes, I claim iTunes is clumsy because it is. What EaseUS does is reduce the autocracy of data transfer to a plain technical issue without all the Apple ID verifications in the middle.
