Blog: Transforming Your Home
Preparation. Preparation. Preparation

Have you ever been sitting at your computer when all of a sudden things start jumping on your screen or you're no longer able to open files? Your stomach gets a knot in it as you begin to realize your computer has just crashed. You immediately think "When's the last time I backed up?"
Even though I'm organized throughout my home, I've never been really good about consistently backing up my PC. The statistics are blaring:
  • Up to 13% of hard drives fail each year, which accounts for more lost data than viruses.
  • Only 3% of stolen laptops are ever recovered
  • 43% of computer users lose irreplaceable photos, emails, and other documents including financial records.
Usually we don't realize how dependent we are on our computers until something goes wrong.
When backing up your computer, make sure you place your backup file in a safe and secure offsite location from home. You have to protect it against fire, theft and other natural disasters.
If you know you won't backup as often as you should, consider having it done for you automatically. I use Carbonite an online, automatic service that backs up my computer so I don't have to spend time doing it or worrying if I should encounter computer issues. For a free trial, click here: Survive a PC Disaster with Carbonite Online Backup! Free trial to get you started-no credit card required.
For less than $1 per week, I finally have peace of mind knowing that this important task is being done for me.
Happy computing,
Audrey Thomas, CPO®
