I’ve recently been overhauling my photo backup process (look for an upcoming post on it) and it made me start thinking about the general idea of backing up files. We’ve all heard the horror stories of people who lost an important document the night before it was due, but do we actually respond to that by backing up our own files regularly? I’d bet that most of us don’t.
But do backups really matter? Unless you’re a college student or writing a novel, do your files really need to be stored indefinitely?
