Your Hard Drive is going to Fail

Play

your hard drive (no not the big box that sits next to your desk) is going to fail. it will fail sometime between tomorrow and the future. it’s a fact of statistics that it will happen. thing is, you don’t know when it’s going to go away. that’s why you need to have copies of everything important to you. this includes pictures, writing, art, 3D, music and everything else. lots of things take multiple days to create that if you lost could not easily be recreated. you have no choice but to fight the future.

Craig has an incredibly redundant redundant back up system. SuperDuper, CronoSync, Dropbox, ExpanDrive and BackBlaze is part of his system.

Backing up is something that everyone needs to do.
