A New Year is a great time to turn over a new leaf. Many folks make resolutions to eat better, exercise more, and generally take better care of themselves. We hear you; our resolution is to drink less coffee. The point here is don’t forget your computer when making plans for the New Year. Nothing breaks our heart more than to tell someone that his or her data is gone. If you don’t have a back up in place now, this is great time to get one. It does not have to be expensive, complicated, or hard to understand. Simple fact is that hard drives die, it’s not a matter of if, and it’s a matter of when. When your drive checks out, make sure your precious data is backed up. We can install an extra hard drive so you can always ensure your data is in two places for as little as $99. Having a simple automated back up is great way to go, but you can take simple steps on your own as well. For example, when you import photos into iPhoto take the time to turn around and burn that data right to a CD-ROM right then and there. Don’t wait for enough photos to accumulate so you can fill a CD. Media is cheap, and isn’t it worth a dollar to make sure you have your photos backed up. While you’re at it take a moment to back up your e-mail data to a DVD or CD. It’s even helpful just to duplicate your e-mail data and move it to another part of your hard drive. E-mail data is frequently corrupted and often overlooked as data that is important and needed to be included in your everyday back up.
