What is your backup plan?
Everyone needs a backup plan – but what is it?
A backup is AT LEAST a second copy of your stuff
So a backup plan is a series of safeguards you put in place that allows you to get back to where you were before things went wrong. Yeah right – Yawn! … blah blah blah.
Okay planning for disaster is a bit paranoid, but ask anyone who has actually lost their stuff and your attitude soon changes – they certainly don’t want to lose anything ever again! However, when you have been burnt the first time you tend to overreact and then you do become paranoid!
So – let’s start getting a plan together before you lose stuff and then you won’t get into that awful paranoid state where you go overboard of precautions.
Where to start – here are some places to save your important digital life :
Online Cloud Backup Services
External Hard Disks
USB Memory Sticks
