A Word to the Wise


This picture has nothing to do with this post, I just liked it, so I thought I'd include it here.

So There!

I've always been pretty good about backing up my computers. That said, I now have many, many, many gigabytes of backed up data, a lot of it involving my old photos.

Lately I've been moving things around, trying for a newer back up strategy. In doing this, I had a few minutes today where I mistakenly believed that I had erased not one but two of my picture backups, leaving me with none at all! Fortunately I found that I had, in fact, backed up my old pictures not twice but three times. And am I ever glad I did.

So a word to the wise. Make sure you back up all that information on your computer. And if it's really important to you, back it up twice or maybe three times.

My computer guy says if it isn't in three places it isn't backed up. I am slowly getting all my photos to the online SmugMug site, have a ton of them on Shutterfly and Picasa and have two external backups. Glad you didn't lose your photos, Kate!
