Do you back up everything?

 

Product Details

 

     After losing several precious to me pictures and some book chapters a few years back when my computer crashed I’ve become rather anal retentive about saving things to CDs and memory drives.

     I have a 2.0G SanDisk that I’ve been using for a few years and it drives me crazy because it has some junk programs that came installed on it.  Thanks but no thanks I only wanted storage for my books.

     With it now back to school season, I found an on-sale-super-cheap 4.0G USB memory drive put out by Dane-Elec.  I’m in love with it.  It is all storage and no junk programs.  At the price I paid for it I’m going back to buy more, many more.

     I’ll use some strictly for pictures and keep others for my writing.  I might even back up my entire computer again although there are a few programs I won’t bother with since I have them on disk.  Heck, if get a couple of the 8G ones I can back up things to my heart’s content.

  1. I just bought a 500GB external hard drive 😳

    I was going to get the 250GB, but this one was just ten pounds more expensive!!

    For only ten pounds more, you betcha I’d go larger. I did when my computer crashed and they had to replace my HD…the really, really big HD was on sale for a few dollars more so naturally I went with that one.

  2. You’re AR about backing up your work? Hah!
    I back up my work to my flash drive as soon as I close a file, even if I’m going to re-open it again in a few minutes.
    Twice a month, I copy everthing (even work I haven’t touched in months) to a CD.

    You sound like me… 😉
