Backup your computer!

For some time now, I’ve had the nagging feeling that my rather sloppy, ad hoc approach to backing up my computers and drives could get me into trouble. For the most part I’ve been lucky so far but I know that one day a hard drive will crash. So I’m in the midst of doing major backups and developing a more systematic backup strategy. I’ll write more about the strategy and tools I’m using in another post coming soon.

In the meantime,  here is a story about a near-disaster saved by backups. The writer is a Mac user, but the lessons apply to Windows users as well.
