A Writer’s Worst Nightmare
Your best option is to back your stuff up. Be faithful about it. Here are some suggestions in how to back up your important data:
Before you back up, you want to have your files in a good organizational order. Otherwise, backing up isn’t going to do you any good if you can’t find what you’re looking for. Spend some time organizing your files and folders.
Back up to an external drive. But remember, this drive must be handled with care. After you back up your data, unplug the drive and store it someplace safe. If you are going away for a few days, take it with you. If your home is ever broken into, you don’t want to make it too easy for a thief to gain access to it.
Once you have your data backed up, set a schedule in your computer to be sure to back up on a regular basis. You might also want to add weekly a reminder in your mobile device or on a calendar.
Another option is backing up to a Cloud. for ten good reasons to do this.
A flash drive is okay for a pinch, but don’t rely too heavily on it, or CDs that can become scratched.
You’ve spilled your heart and soul into your work. Treat it with the importance it deserves.
