Oct. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- In a recent study by Seagate, computer repair experts were asked “How Much Is Your Customer’s Data Worth? 36% of consumers have “priceless” data, but few back it up.”  For those reluctant to journey from hard drive to "the cloud," author Andrea Eldridge offers this reality check: “You're already there. Sort of. In one way or another, most computer users at least passively employ cloud technology — even if only by accessing email.”  Now it’s time to explore your options, so you can proactively utilize a cloud storage and backup account. (Seagate, 2012).

Eldridge offers a sky-full of down-to-earth detail about the cloud and how to maximize its use. According to Eldridge, advantages of cloud storage over the purchase of a secondary hard drive include unlimited storage space, reliability and off-site protection. She includes guidance on how to choose a cloud storage provider from among the many available, based upon the kind and amount of data you wish to store, the type and number of devices from which you will want access to it, and how widely you wish to share it.

Andrea Eldridge, industry leading tech guru, CEO of Nerds On Call, and mother of two, decided to write the definitive book to help the new iPad user.  Her latest book The Cloud for Hard Drive Refugees (Tech 101 Kindle Book Series is now available at

Andrea’s goal is to teach users how to use technology easily and comfortably. The book was written for the everyday and novice user who was used to “the days of patiently connecting all of your mobile devices to your primary computer to sync your data only to have it instantly out of date as soon as you download a new track on your MP3 player can be over if you integrate your media collection into a syncing data storage solution. Some services even allow you to selectively sync data by device, so you can keep your workout tunes current on your phone without getting your partner’s daily podcasts.”

Along the way, she provides helpful information on a wide range of topics, including   highlights from The Cloud for Hard Drive Refugees (Tech 101 Kindle Book Series)

•   Estimating how much space you need
•   How to choose a provider
•   Keeping your data safe

And much more! What Is the Cloud?, The Cloud for Data Storage, Choosing a Cloud    Provider, The Cloud for Data Backup and Tips for Cloud Safety.
