Don't forget to backup !!!

Don't forget to backup !!! … and yes, I am serious. We commit so much data to hard drives nowadays. Thankfully, they are a lot more reliable than they used to be, but ALL hard drives fail at some point. I personally know someone who lost 15 years of precious photo memories on their laptop when the hard drive crashed. Had they made a backup, there would have been less tears. 

My suggestion to you all, is have one local backup on an external hard drive, a second backup on a hard drive that you store off-site (maybe at a relatives house) and a third backup to the cloud.

These Seagate S Series archive hard drives are ideal if you have a NAS drive.
