Back it up or lose it

In a cruel bit of irony, today (or tonight, as this is quickly turning into an all-nighter), I learned the hard way to back up my stuff. Again. This lesson, of course, comes with the requisite “hindsight is 20/20″ disclaimer.

So, yeah. Make sure you back up your stuff. Either locally or on a back-up drive or on the web. And it probably wouldn’t hurt to have a back-up of your back-ups, either. I’m just saying.

Personally, I use Dropbox for an off-site online storage, a Western Digital portable drive for on the go, and a Maxtor 500GB drive to back up at home.

And yet somehow I still manage to lose my stuff.
