A digital file doesn’t exist if there’s only one copy.

It’s true. NO, really.

The very first day of University, this is what they told us. We all thought “Nahhhh, that’s not true”. Then at some point in our first year, a computer broke, a file got accidentally deleted, insert-other-mishap-here.

My own track record with backups has been iffy, but overall I’ve been lucky. Learned a few hard lessons, but nothing too devastating (*frantically knocks on wooden desk*). I’ve started to build it into my calendar – Fridays are backup days. It takes maybe 10 minutes, I can tidy up while the files transfer over, and I have peace of mind, and am protecting my client’s best interests as well.

Take a look at this site for tips on how to streamline your backups better.
