Hard Drive Back Up (Part 2)


Cool Tip: Protect your hard drive backups. Keep your hard drive backups in a safe and secure place.


The most I would loose would be a few words on my paper that I had typed this morning and that would be very easy to rewrite.  I would not loose days but only an hour or two of data and time.  I was saved by my latest system backup of my computer hard drive to an external USB hard drive.  Once I replaced my old dead hard drive with a new one, all I had to do was perform a drive restore from my external USB hard drive to my new internal laptop hard drive.  I would be back in business again and would continue on to type up my paper about the evolution of chipmunks.  Life would be good once again in short order.  My daily routine of my hard drive backup had saved my day. YAHOOOOOOOOOO!!!
