Family History Month - BACKUP

~Today's prompt is brought to you by the letter B ~

Everyone who uses computers for their genealogy knows the mantra ~ backup your work and your files.  It is a fact of life that hard drives crash, flash drives go missing, software programs go wonky on you, and a host of gremlins (both machine and human error) can cause us hours of frustration and lost work. 

Today's activity and prompt is ~ backup, backup, backup!  If you are like me you know that you should do it but you may be unsure of the nuts and bolts of how to do it.  If this describes you, check out the How-To Geek's recent article What Files Should You Backup On Your Windows PC?  This blog is a great resource for all things technology-related and I found this article especially helpful in making sense of data protection.
