Crashed! Again!

A few days ago my computer crashed at the most inconvenient time. So when is it a convenient time? Fortunately I back up all my documents and important files on a cloud such as DropBox. But what about software and recovery discs. There’s nothing more frustrating than finding out a disc has been compromised just when you need it, and then what do you do?

GMail’s Google Drivblue-screen-of-death-bsod-1315235-me currently allows you to  store up to 15 Gb per account. That’s a lot of files, and if you use Google Chrome, Drive will permit you to upload folder along with their contents.

After my last crash I did just that. Everything I considered important enough to keep went to Google Drive.

Over the next few days I’ll be re-installing everything I need and if there is a problem with a disc, I’ll download the files and burn them to disc. It’s that simple.

So try this method for backing up. If it works for me, perhaps it will work for you.
