If you don’t backup

Then this could happen. How much is YOUR digital data worth? I’m backing up the laptop and desktop but the NAS isn’t which is something I need to fix and soon. I couldn’t afford to go to a recovery service to get my data back.

I make use of SuperDuper which makes backing up a quick and easy task, documents are also held on .Mac as a further backup and recent images are on Flickr. I’ve been lucky and never had a disk failure (touch wood) but I know people who have and it’s not pretty. Even just having an external drive and dragging your data over once every few weeks would be better than a total loss. I hope if you read this and more importantly the linked post above that you heed the advice.

  1. Its an issue thats importance will just grow and grow as we commit more of our time and resources online. Reading that link actually put me off getting a DV camera (which we’d been thinking about due to the kids!) due to the sheer enormity of what you’ll soon create. Eek!

  2. DV camera would be great for capturing kids as they grow though. Just need a few external drives, thats all 😉
