A Lesson Learned in Backing Up Data

by Mike

How many times have you heard people saying “Make sure you back up your data regularly”?

Do you do it?  I didn’t think so.

I have a USB drive that I periodically backup my vital files to but to be honest I don’t do it nearly often enough.  In fact a few months went by and I just kept saying to myself, “I’ll get to it tomorrow.”

Well about 2 weeks ago my laptop crapped out on me and until last night it was little more than an expensive paper weight.  

I was really worried that I’d have to go out and buy a replacement, and in the meantime I was dead in the water.  I couldn’t get any writing done and now I’m way behind.

Fortunately my friend Paul is an IT guru and he was able to replace my corrupted hard drive and save most of my data.   So for the price of a new hard drive and a case of Red Stripe I’m now back in business. 

I don’t think I lost anything of importance but I’ve learned a valuable lesson and I’ll be backing up my data regularly from now on!

Yes, really backing up the data is very important. I also keep on thinking like, I’ll backup tomorrow and like that. but now I’ve learned to backup regularly.
