As we talked about in “Stay worry-free and safe in the post-XP world”, backing up personal documents is a must.
There are two ways to back up documents. One is to copy files to hard drives, and the other is to the “Cloud”, which is also a hard drive, only located somewhere else.

The point is, if you are a photo lover, which means you take more than 300 photos per month, and you already have more than 5000 photos in your hard drive. Get a hard drive to back up, and partner with a new computer.

The main reason we do not recommend the hard drive for backup is that, if a XP gets attacked, the joint hard drive might have problems, too. However, If documents are on a Cloud, we can always retrieve them back to a new device.
Based on what type of personal documents you have, there are different Clouds suitable for them.
For photo and video files:
Flickr // Google + // Facebook
For Word, Excel, pdf, all types of files:
Google drive // Dropbox // Skydrive
