Re: 1st of Month - Time to Backup Your Data
In reply to canuck dave, Aug 9, 2012

I back up my data every third time I open my programs, if that is selectable, and every week otherwise.

Last week, I had a catastrophic hard drive failure, no recovery. I installed another drive from the shelf, installed the OS, programs, and proceeded to get all my data back over the past two days from backup RAID drives. I also have a weekly full drive backup as well, and could have just copied the drive over, but after 5 years on this machine, I decided to install everything new, and see if I could improve the performance a bit.

Backups will save you when the inevitable occurs.
