BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP...The three most important words in the industry.

And I should know. 

After working 25 years in the industry and repairing, computers and retrieving data, so much grief could be saved if one of the words was followed.

So...have you backed up lately?

There a number of excellent synchronizing software programs and websites with secure automated offsite backups. Why not use them?

We have found Dropbox and Justcloud both excellent and hassle free.

Why not try them out?

Information usefully? I run on java. Please donate to my fund here

Many thanks.
