Why You Need To Backup! I would have lost all of my files...
Posted 28 October 2010 - 07:09 PM
When I went in on Monday to pick it up, I discovered that, to my horror, that they had installed the new drive, had put my old installation on Vista on it, and try had WIPED my F drive clean.
My F drive holds all of my photos, layouts, design work, and writing. It was awful.
What kept me from completely flipping out? I have everything backed up two ways: on an EHD and with Carbonite. The day before I took it into the shop I made sure that my EHD backup was current.
Can you imagine how horrific it would be if that drive was't beaked up???
I use a free tool by Microsoft called SyncToy to do my EHD backup.
I just got it back today. It will probably take me a week to get all of the software, hardware, and files set up like I want them. But at least, I can.
If you haven't set yourself up with a good back up plane, do it...today!

The backup software of my WD EHD didn't work properly too and I had bunch of corrupted files. I did it manually too, but it is worth trying a good synchronizing/backup software. It is worth it because now it is so easy for me.

My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

YES! That's a very good thing. I do that too. In case .... and hopefully I'll never need it!
