I always remind folks to back up their data, simply because
stuff happens! I've read one too many forum posts from members
saying I "should've," "could've," "would've" backed up my files, but
of course they didn't. And if you think for one moment your data is
invincible, please wake up.
If you haven't backed up your data or are looking for some good Windows
utilities to automate or simplify your backup efforts, you should give
CNET blogger Rick Broida's blog entry "Reader poll: What's the best
free backup program" a read. He has some ideas on utilities you can
use to easily back up your data, and best of all, the ones he
recommends are free.
And if you're already doing backups, tell us if you're using one of Rick's
recommended utilities. Maybe you have another one you are already
using, so tell us why you recommend it. The more knowledge you
share, the more options for us to choose from. Bottom line is for
everyone to get their backup going now, and not later when it's
too late. Thanks for your contributions to a good cause!
