►PSA (for Krampus Day)
My gift to you for Krampus Day… Backup all the data that you care about keeping onto a cloud storage.
I’m an IT Pro for a University, and every couple of months we see a tear-smeared student lamenting the loss of their data. Hard drives, flash drives… All hardware can break, even brand new hardware. Years ago I met a PhD student who lost his dissertation when his hard drive died; he had to ship it off to CA and spend $850 to retrieve the data.
My advice is to make a habit of uploading all you care about onto the cloud. There are tons of freebies. I personally use BOX [and Google Drive (just because I’m already logged into my Gmail, and I am lazy)] but it doesn’t matter much which one you choose.
OK, good deed done. 😉
