It is the first Monday of the month and time to back up your data. This is as much of a plea as it is a useful reminder.
Back Up Your Computer. Do It Today.
Drives fail, computers get stolen, electricity will randomly fry electronics. Please don’t just hope things will be OK.
Yes, we are very happy to recover your lost data from any piece of hardware here at Rocket (it is our job after all) but we would genuinely prefer that you didn’t have any problems to begin with.
So, firstly, back up your files, photos and video in 3 different physical places, and in 2 different mediums.
Secondly, make a copy of your computer. We use Carbon Copy successfully.
There is not one perfect solution or manufacturer when it comes to image/file storage. It is always best to spread the risk by using different machines and technologies.
