Under -18s are masters of data backups

 

Under-18s are proving to be among the most savvy internet users when it comes to managing personal information on their computers. One-third of youngers aged 8-11 regularly copy their data on to separate hard drives to keep it private and the figure rises to almost 50% by the time they reach 15 (see column two above). Some 20% of 15- to 17-year-olds say they upload data to specialised websites, indicating their faith in internet security and virtual storage as well as their ability to protect their most important files. As a result, one-fifth of respondents do not worry about losing files because they know they can download them again.
