Protecting Your Digital Assets
I just hooked up my brand new Apple Time Machine today (purchased using American Express points at 40% off!). I’m very excited and relieved to have the time machine hooked up and all of my important data backed up. The thousands of photos and hours of home video that we have stored on our iMac are priceless. If we lost these assets, it would be a tough pill to swallow. Thus, the Time Machine is backing everything up safely. Redundancy is important!
Do you have your data backed up? If not, you should really get on that. Also, you may want to consider an “offsite” back up or online backup which provides an additional layer of redundancy. If your house burns down and your main computer and your back up hard drive get killed off, you’ll still be fine!
