“Sooner or later, you won’t regret backing up hard drive”

Posted in General Business,Security by ebs4pos on October 4, 2009

When personal computing was young and exotic, making a backup copy of your files was a real chore. Most ordinary folks used floppy disks. That required sitting in front of the computer to feed in the disks, like putting quarters in a slot machine.

The task was so boring that many of us decided it was just too much trouble.

Nowadays those excuses are gone. Plug in an external hard disk to your computer and the backup is done automatically. You can take a nap or use the computer for other tasks while the backup is being done. Given the ease of backups and their importance, I’m going to nag you today to make sure you make sure your computer’s hard disk is regularly backed up.

After all, if you use a hard disk long enough, it’s going to fail. Guaranteed.
