Lego_Addict: No reason why you can't have a backup these days. A 32GB drive the size of my thumbnail costs under $30 these days. In most cases, that's more than enough for documents.
you_idiot: Exactly. PhD in chemistry, preschool backup skills.That's what happens when you grow up in the era of reliable hard drives. Unlike us old fogies who grew up listening to the grind of the motors of a 5.25" floppy (which we had 3 back ups of each).Chunk chunk bbbbbrrrrraaaaaappppp chunk chunk brrrrrrraaaaaappppp.... the sound of backup #3 of thesis work on floppy drive. Oh well, switch to copy number 2, buy another $10 5.25" floppy and make that the new back up disk.
