Use the 3-2-1 Backup Plan
Me, the “tech guy,” got burned last year and lost data. It was my own fault and I accepted full responsibility for just being plain lazy. While I’ve been using Dropbox since its inception, I turned off the syncing feature on my desktop because of “the need for speed” when it came to working. Each day I kept telling myself that I would turn it back on and go watch television or do something while the program caught up and copied my local data up to the Dropbox servers. And then the hard drive failed on my desktop computer. I lost two weeks’ worth of writing and research. Poof! Gone!
Here is a short video explaining how one of my hard drives just up and died recently and why I didn’t panic because I am using the 3-2-1 Backup Plan along with iDrive:
