Re: Warning. Honest.

I used to have one external hard drive that I cloned to, but after on a couple of occasions having failures during the cloning process itself, I now have two external hard drives that I alternatively clone to so that if there's a problem during the cloning process, I have a back up. I also have a couple of flash drives that I store data only on.

In regard to the poster that says he has little sympathy for those that don't do back ups and lose their data, I have a lot of sympathy for those folks because if someone doesn't use computers a lot and isn't real computer savvy, they're not always always aware of the things they should be doing like backing up their data. A friend of mine fit into that category and her hard drive crashed she lost all of her photos and was devastated. I had another friend that was a college student and not really into computers all that much and not aware of the importance of backing her data up, and she wrote her thesis on a laptop and the laptop crashed and it was goodbye thesis. I have a lot of sympathy for them.
