Belt, braces and ... something else :D



I have learned through recent debacles. :}

I back stuff up on line.

I back it up on both the always-plugged-in external drive, and on an external drive that is plugged in once a week, loaded, and then removed.

So that's three ways - AND I email stuff to myself, as well, (and have recently been able to recover something from Google Documents, as I'd used that to prepare something for going online elsewhere).

Add to that - backing a lot of stuff up onto disk.

So - belt, braces and something else.

Am I the only one this paranoid? confused2

Well, I felt very silly to be caught out, when I so constantly tell students, etc., that "if you don't back it up, you don't care about it" - and then I had data loss!

Not much and not catastrophic but still - silly of me. :}
