Backup Backup Backup…

Or When It Goes Horribly Awry…

I’ve been in IT for longer than I care to think about. I have preached for years about the need to backup. I try to live that myself. 
But sometimes it goes rather awry.

Right now I have at least three backups of the original copy of the second book in what’s become known as the Rock and Roll Angel trilogy. We’re not counting the hard copy print out that I have of what I managed to get done. 

I’m trying to pull from those prior copies to bring it into the newer version, but considering that I have multiple copies… it’s a fun thing to deal with. 
While it’s important to keep backups in multiple locations, I will say that getting to the point I’m at takes a combination of both well intentioned thoughts, hardware failures and ADHD level forgetfulness.

Still, backups are important. Keeping an offsite backup is important too. Just… don’t let it get to the point that I am at, dear friends. 🙂
