Hi all;

As we start a new yr I'll pass on a reminder.

Get a cheap separate HD and back up your computer. Valuable Pictures and much more is at stake.
(Cloud back up also an option but I certainly don't know that much.)
I've been told to then disconnect it and store it away from Internet access.
A friend even hides it very well when he goes out of town so that if someone breaks in nothing else is that valueable to be stolen, even the computer itself. Heck even traveling w your computer makes this a good idea.

In these days of sleezy attacks holding your computers hostage to just plain wasting vast amounts of our time fixing and rebuilding our lives and computers after this happens lets keep them from winning.

Let's have a good 2015.

Janice

Always have a backup.  Many years ago I lost everything except my data from a house fire.  My third backup drive is held at a completely different location from my main drives.  So nothing lost...  except for everything else :(

 

I don't trust this Cloud business just yet, if ever.
