Store and backup files

Best practices for saving and backing up data

The best way to store and work with files, is to use Frame's integration with cloud storage (Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, etc.). See [this article](https://docs.fra.me/docs/connect-to-cloud-storage) for more details. In addition to these options you can also install any cloud storage agent on your Desktop (e.g. OneDrive) to synch files with your cloud storage account. This ensures that your data is backed up. With Frame Personal, your "PC in the Cloud" is persistent and does have extra storage space where you can store files. **However**, just like with a PC on your desktop you need to make sure that your files are backed up. If you are not using a cloud storage option as described above, you should make sure to back up your files another way (e.g. download to your local system).
