Back It Up

Rob Weir has written a cautionary response to my blog post on the decline of “hard media”. He’s worried about how digital media makes it so easy to lose everything. I absolutely agree. It’s a scary to think that a single hard drive failure could wipe out years of accumulated music, photos, financial records, etc.

We lost the hard drive on our MacBook last year. Completely dead. Fortunately, we had a backup and didn’t lose anything. (Yeah, SuperDuper!) But it was a wake-up call for me. Since then I’ve tried to be even more diligent in making sure that we back up our home computers regularly. Important files are also backed up a second time to our NAS. When we visited my parent last week, we bought an external hard drive and set up a backup schedule for them.

Hard drives fail. Are you backing up your data?
