Three Technology Tips for the April 15 Tax Filing Deadline

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/15/09 -- Don't let Murphy's Law make you miss the tax filing deadline. With an increasing portion of our lives now stored digitally, make sure your technology is well-equipped to meet the deadline and your financial data needs, no matter what happens.

Acronis, a global provider of storage management software, offers consumers these tips to ensuring a smooth technical experience:

-- Keep copies of your data. Many people e-file, as it is very convenient. Make sure you keep an electronic and/or paper copy of your forms for future reference. Your copy can be stored on backup drives, CDs, DVDs or via another method you choose, but make sure you backup on a regular basis so you have your most recent data at the ready should you need it later on. Even if you don't need the data for the IRS, you might need it at some point for Social Security, wills and trusts, etc. Consult your attorney or tax advisor regarding your individual circumstances.

-- Secure your data. A spate of laptop thefts over the past year has compromised the safekeeping of sensitive data of millions of people. Whether you use a laptop or a desktop system, guard your information through backup that safeguards your data via encryption and/or secure passwords.

-- Ensure a speedy recovery for your data. Viruses and hard drive failures not only affect your files, but also your PC and peripheral settings. In a failure or virus attack, you'll lose precious time finding a vendor to restore your PC operating environment, and get you back online to retrieve your files -- unless you have chosen a backup/restore solution that takes care of all your data and your system settings right from the start. Products such as Acronis True Image Home 2009 create an exact copy of your PC and restore it from a major failure in just minutes -- even if the failure is due to a worm or virus that slipped by your antivirus software. With just hours to go before the 2008 tax filing deadline, that mirror image of your tax papers as well as your photos, music, video and other files can certainly be a life-saver.
