Have You Backed Up Lately?

Just a reminder to back up your laptop or computer on a regular basis.  In helping teachers with their computer problems, many times people have "lost everything" due to not backing up regularly.  If your school has a server, you could choose to back up to a folder on your school's server.  If no server space is available, Dropbox gives 2GB of free online storage. Another option is purchasing an external hard drive and back up to that. I recommend to my teachers to back up at least monthly, but every 2 weeks is probably even better.  That way, if your computer goes haywire, you won't lose too much data. So, advice for today:  stop, back up those important files, and feel secure in knowing if something should go wrong, you'll have your files in another location safe and sound!
