Back up your stuff!

Helpful Hints, News | Posted by Dennis December 30th, 2010

Is it important?  Then BACK IT UP.  We have countless (sad!) stories of people losing a decade’s worth  of pictures, songs, or work because they failed to do this.  There are lots of options, but the three most popular are 1) memory sticks 2) USB or network drives and 3) online backup.  Memory sticks are now available up to 256 Gb, but the price break is at about 32 Gb right now.  USB/network drives offer much larger capacity and often come with software to automate your backup.  The most recent trend, online backup, sends your stuff to “the cloud”.  Carbonite is one of the most popular, and reasonable, online backup services.  Be sure to check pricing, security, and reviews before purchasing any of these.
