My hard drive crashed last week...I wrote about it in my newsletter
Here's a few of the things I learned
- Several of you shared good experiences with Mozy and Carbonite, both online backups and Norton Ghost. I think one of these will be the way for me to go.
- Even if you have backups...it isn't easy or fun to reinstall everything. I'd been using a Maxtor Drive for backup and there seems to be some compatibility issues with Vista that are giving us fits. Bottom line if their program isn't able to open and restore.
- I was thrilled I had Carolyne's Organizer (You too could get one from Carolyne [firstname.lastname@example.org]) because I've kept all my disks, and purchase information in one place.
- The old saying about if your hard drive hasn't crashed... it will, is one to believe.
