Huge documents file of entire history of my File Management Co, – 6 yrs of info for non-profit I started, Client files, my personal files. In other words my life for the past so many years. Pictures of Bassets recused by BHRA.org over the years, real estate I own, family and lots of others some from clients. And it is amazing how often I have to track back to an older document or picture.
Having spent lots of years as a records management consultant, I am all about disaster planning and backup, backup, backup and make sure the backup is off the property. Hence the online backup. The external is a onsite safety precaution. In the event the computer crashes, I can quickly restore my files and still be in business. My bad is that I have not tested the restore function of the online backup. Shame on me as I know that is a disaster planning protocol.
Please set your computer to back up more regularly than sporadic. I back up QB monthly in the event of a crash or emergency,, I do not want to reconstruct more than 1 months data.
