PC TIP OF THE DAY: PROTECTING DATA IN THE CASE OF POWER FAILURE

0

For the past years UPS have been used in computer centers and critical business applications.

How to protect data during power failure
But the cost of UPS has come down over the years so that UPS can also be used for personal computers too. UPS is a battery backup; it saves power and gives it back when there is a power failure. During power failure you can’t continue working on your computer. If you use UPS, it will give enough time to save the work that you’ve already started.
If you have unsaved data during power failure, you can change your ‘Power Option’ settings to ensure that your computer will go into ‘Hibernate mode’ before the battery backup power is gone. Once a computer enters Hibernate mode, it takes all of the data that is in memory and stores it on your hard drive. Just Follow the below steps to change your system settings.
Step 1: StartàControl PanelàPerformance and MaintenanceàPower Options.
Step 2: In Power Option Properties, select Hibernate tab.
Step 3: Select the checkbox titled  Enable hibernation. Then click Apply
Step 4: Click the Power Schemes tab.
Step 5: In the Power Schemes drop down menu, select Max Battery from the list.
Step 6: In the “System hibernates” category, select a time that is less than your maximum backup battery life. Then click Apply
Step 7: Exit all windows.
