Well, I’d been planning a note about backups but waking up to a screen on my laptop saying “Warning! A hard drive error has occurred, please back up your data and run diagnostics.” I figured now was as good a time as any. This is just a quick blurb since, as you may imagine, I’m kind of busy dealing with the issue.
Anyhow, I’m a fan of Dropbox. Dropbox offers cloud backup and syncs data across multiple computers or devices. It’s fast and pretty much real-time backup of your data, once you configure your Documents to go there or vice versa. I’ve used it for quite a while so all my important data is backed up. Still, hopefully I won’t have to reinstall my OS … time will tell if I can image to a new hard drive or not.
Go check out Dropbox now!
Oh, and the hard drive’s only a year and a half old! Go figure, eh?
