Back It Up or Shut It Down

We had a scare this week, we thought we had lost everything we have been working on since we started our new yearbook last April.  The USB drive that had all the work on it went missing.

Needless to say, there was panic, freaking out and even some yelling.

I was stupid for not backing it up.  A student actually found the USB drive and is going to bring it to school on Tuesday morning  after the holiday.

It renews my faith in humanity.

But that aside, you must have a system to back up important files.  Burn them on a CD, put them on a separate hard drive, store them on an off site server.  It doesn’t matter how, just back it up – or disaster will shut you down.
