This has nothing to do with real estate but I couldn't help but share this with you. In one of my realtor magazines I read about this USB flash drive to back up my hard drive. You just plug it into a USB port, press the button on the flash drive and that's it. Well I went to the company's (SanDisk) website and it said, "Introducing the first USB flash drive with a backup button. No wires. No fuss. Just an easier way to protect your favorite photos, videos, songs and more-so you'll always have them with you.
Well I ordered a 16GB flash drive from Buy.com for $45.04, shipping included. It arrived today! Well it true - I plugged it in clicked OK/Next and that was it. About an hour later, while I still worked on the computer, I was backed up. I plugged the flash drive into my laptop (I just couldn't trust it yet) and sure enough everything was there.
We all know we need to be backing up our files but we just don't. I have found out that with computers it's not a question of "if it's going to crash" it's a question of "when is it going to crash".
