I lost all my data when my laptop crashed last month. No excuse, I knew I should be backing up my data. I just did not do it and I had to pay someone to rescue my data from my hard drive. A simple solution would have been to subscribe to an Online Backup service.
Nowadays you can pretty much automate the back up process with Windows Scheduler. IBackup.com, sponsor of this post, offers a scalable solution that will allow you to change your plans as your storage needs increase. Subscribe today for only $9.95 for 5 Gb per month. Or, wait until the fickle finger of fate pushes your button. LOL
