As an IT professional I deal with computer problems everyday but it still surprises me when individuals lose years of work because of a serious computer crash. In many of these cases backup methods are readily available but simply not used. While most large businesses realize the consequences of lost data and have extensive backup methods that even include multiple location replication, individuals still seem to believe that computers, laptops, and tablets are invincible and don’t require backup. After losing hundreds of pages of your inspired writing you will certainly realize the folly of that belief. Hopefully you won’t wait until that happens to start backing up your work. More on backup in my next post.
