I accidentally dropped my stunning, blogging buddy, Sonya a few months back and she has been unwell since then. I didn’t bring her to a computer doctor in spite of a few dents and a clinking noise inside her, she is still functioning anyway. But, when she started to collapse after a few minutes of starting up, I got worried. I did the necessary first aid by seeing to it that the battery is not empty. However, even after a few attempts of recovering her, she still continued to collapse. I almost cried. Thoughts of losing her and everything within her repeatedly played on my mind. I haven’t backed up my files! I hurriedly brought her to a computer doctor and asked him to do a surgery on her. When she was opened up, we saw that one of her fan blades was broken and a piece of it was trapped in between the blades, making it impossible for the fan to revolve, creating excess heat and thereby causing the collapse.
I was mighty glad the operation was successful and that Sonya is up about. I don't want to be careless this time as she not in perfect health now, so I immediately made a backup of my files. I bought an external hard drive for my backup files. I thought of using cloud storage as well but it seems I can't afford it yet. Cloud storage, by the way is the safest way to store important files and folders away from accidents that may happen like theft or hard drive failure. There are a few companies that offer cloud storage services in a minimal amount. You may check them out here.
Now, I have no worries about the sudden lost of my important files and precious memories. It really feels good to be always prepared. How about you? Have you backed up your files yet? Be sure you do and don't delay. We never know when these circumstances strike.
