A Friendly Reminder to Back Up Your Shit


Ladies and gentlemen, at this juncture in time I do heartily recommend that you pause in the midst of your feed-reading and back up any writing, art, notes, etc, on Dropbox (free membership available) or any other web backup or external hard drive of your choice. Yes, you need to do it now. You can thank me next time your hard drive or Windows installation bites the dust. As mine just did, no less than fifteen minutes after I had backed up my Scrivener project, but the bulk of my RPG campaign, design, and one shot material that did not make it online in some form is now gone, forever. Don’t be a statistic.

This public service announcement brought to you by Lindevi’s very own pain and suffering.

    I feel your pain. This happened to me about two(?) years ago and I’m still kicking myself for not backing up my files.

    Now I back up onto an external HD. Come to think of it, I’m due for a back up. Thanks!

    I use a dropbox alternative, I wont promote it on your blog by saying its name here but its easy to find. I use it to backup all my local files and also use a wordpress plugin to auto backup my blog to it. It sounds like hard work to get it setup and it wasnt fun but I will say that now its done I have real piece of mind. When the PC crashes from time to time and I need to reset I have no worries if something doesnt load. Its well worth doing, your right!
