Just like you should always wear a seat belt when riding in a car then, along the same lines, you should always make backups of the information stored in your computer. In both cases those actions won't prevent a crash but the recovery time will hopefully be lessened.
Over a year ago I wrote several posts about the various backups methods that you can use. If you aren't making backups of your valuable genealogical and personal information on your computer then take the time to read the posts and put into place a backup plan. Those articles are:
- Backups - Part I (An Overview)
- Backups - Part II (Local backups)
- Backups - Part III (Cloud Storage)
- Backups - Part IV (Wrap up)
Don't be the next victim of lost genealogy data!
