How Can I Protect Myself from a Data Disaster?

26 04 2007
  1. Make sure you have 2 copies, in 2 different places (not on the same drive)
  2. Use automated back-up software (you will not remember to do t)
  3. Use battery back-up (not surge protection) to condition your powerdisaster
  4. Make sure your PC case is clear of lint, and able to ventilate heat out
  5. DO NOT USE EXTERNAL DRIVES AS PRIMARY STORAGE (only backups)
  6. Do not trust floppies, ZIP disks, or CD-ROMs as primary backup, they are easily damaged, scratched, or de-magnetized.
  7. Backup your laptop everyday (automated)
  8. Spend money now, to prevent spending it later (8% x year x drive x 3 years)
