Backup ???

by Richie / September 24, 2005 12:57 AM PDT

What person using a computer needs backup. Are you that important, are the things you do so life ending you need a backup. Are you crashing a lot? You shouldn't keep secret or sensitive material on your puter there not that dependable yet and people can get it if they want it. I repair computers and have only seen 3 crashes in 15 years. I mean total crashes where I had to reformat the hard drive an reinstall the OS. I still was able to get text files and pix off the crashed drive and save them to an external HD that I had. We are a "What if society", scared of everything negative. We LEARN from negatives. oh well, nuf said. Thank You for Reading.
