Back Up Your Files

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on January 10, 2012 by getbent57

Spent part of my day backing up some files.  Try to do it once a month but it has been longer than that.  Have a lot of pictures and video project I don’t want to loose.  Got thinking this would make a good blog post.  Of all the computers I have worked on for people only one person has ever backed up there files.  It is pretty easy to do plus now a days you get a small USB powered portable hard drive pretty cheap.  I have two, well worth the money.  There are some online options as well.  One of the biggest and names out there, Drop Box, is a good choose.  Haven’t tried it but they give you 2GB for free and it works across multiple platforms.  So please back up your files because you never know when you computer could stop working.

seagate hd I found a great little portable HD at Wal-Mart a few weeks back.  It is the Seagate external portable 250 GB drive.  It works just like one of those thumb drives, just plug and play.  You don’t need a power source like most external hard drives.  It is USB powered.  I got a good deal on it.  Paid about $78 for it.  Went online today and found the some on at Future Shop for $109.99.  If you are looking for a portable external HD this is a good chose.
