Don't Lose Your Sh*t
One of my hard drives just died. I had a backup that hard drive, but the backup did not have all the files that were on the original drive, the backup had about 90% of the data.
I'm in the process of recovery the lost data that I had, but it is an annoying and long process.
Here is my new process to make sure that I do not lose data in the future.
1. Computer hard drive
This is the first spot where I say information. The most important information I care about are my critical personal documents and photos.
Amazon, Microsoft, Google. Take your pick. But upload a copy of your important information to some place in the cloud. Amazon offer free unlimited photo storage.
3. Hard Drive 2
This is where I keep a copy of individual files that are on my computer.
4. Hard Drive 3
This is where I keep a total backup file of the computer hard drive and then hard drive 2. May also keep another with a copy of individual files, just in case.
5. Print of physical copies
I know this is a pain. But it documents or photos are really important than it is not a bad idea to keep a physical copy of the information someplace safe. Safety deposit box, safe, random box in your closet. Whatever works for you.
