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?
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.
