Tip: You should back up your project(s) on a regular basis. But that's only part of the story.
- Rotate through several backups. If you discover a problem or decide to reverse changes, it is sometimes very important to be able to go back more than one backup.
- Don't store your critical backup on the same HARD DRIVE as your project because if your hard drive crashes, then you may lose both.
- Don't store your critical backup on the same COMPUTER as your project because computers are sometimes stolen or damaged.
- Don't store your critical backup in the same ROOM as your project because fires, floods, or other disasters could destroy both.
- Don't even store your critical backup in the same BUILDING as your project for the same reason.
- backup to your hard drive every day, rotating through at least 3 or 4 file names.
- backup to external media (zip disk, CD-R, etc.) every week and store it in a storage room away from the computer
- backup to external media (zip disk, CD-R, etc.) every month and give it to a neighbor or store it in a safety deposit box.
