My husband is downstairs in his basement office taking apart his laptop. There are a few dozen screws scattered around the desk and the shell of his beloved computer without it’s hard drive.
His laptop has everything on it. It is his work – software, files, everything he uses to create his language learning program, PeanutButter.
The other day, in the middle of his work, his computer died. It simply wouldn’t turn on, respond….nothing. He panicked. So much work might be lost. It had been a few days since he had done his last back up, and the thought of losing everything that he had accomplished since that back up were devastating.
When is the last time you performed a computer backup?
I don’t back my computer up often enough, and I know that the idea of losing all of my photos stresses me to no end. However, I’ve been lazy about looking into a good solution for myself and sticking with a schedule of backing up my files.
