Recently, It is being seen people lose their laptops/PC, data and worry about that. One thing we need to keep in our mind is that a computer is just hardware that can be crashed or even theft at any time. So backing up your important data is necessary. You can make use of any popular cloud storage for the purpose like OneDrive which is an inbuilt cloud storage service of Microsoft. or Dropbox, Google Drive, and MEGA each give free storage for personal usage. Choose the appropriate one and create an account on it.
Cloud backup – Google vs Dropbox vs OneDrive vs MEGA

Back up any file—anywhere, anytime
You can store all important files safely in your cloud storage account. With access to your Cloud storage files from any device, operating system, or platform, you can work and collaborate on any documents with ease. with or without having an internet connection you can work on files while offline, from your desktop computer, Android, iPhone. Once you get back online, your files and folders will automatically sync with any edits you made when you weren’t connected.

Losing precious data, family photos or unintentionally deleting work files–like when your computer/phone goes missing or your external drive stops working–can be stressful. Explore the advantages of file backup with a cloud:

If your files are accidentally deleted, lost, or updated too early, there’s no need to worry. All cloud storage providers give you file recovery and version history, you can restore your deleted files or previous versions of work without missing a beat.
By default, Dropbox/Google Drive/MEGAsync backs up all of your individual files, including early versions of files, for a full 30 days
Dropbox is the platform I have been using for a long time, the personal subscription is 2GB only and that is enough for me to sync all my documents including my research data across my three devices (Debian OS, Windows 10, and Android phone).
