Have corrected a couple of mistakes.

Thank you

Please try to use the correct versions of “its/it’s” and your/you’re. The impression of illiteracy never ads to a business’ credibility.

Here’s five more pointers for your list. You should think about making these lists into PDF’s as flyers that people can download and stick on the wall.

16. Keep a Log! If you’ve got lots of backups in lots of different places – a log can quickly help you find the right backup for the job. Let’s face it when you need to recover from a backup chances are you need to do it quickly!

17. Copy me, Copy you. Can’t afford an online service? Agree to store your friends backup on your computer and their’s on yours.

18. Get a memory stick. They cost peanuts these days and can store huge amounts of information, plus they are very quick too and often don’t need special software to make them work.

19. Get everyone involved. Backups shouldn’t be the domain of a single person (unfortunately though often they are!). Get as many people involved so they understand the importance of backing up data. Especially important at home with all those pictures, and music.

20. Do It Now! (ok that’s a cheap pun for my Blog) – but don’t leave it till tomorrow – if you have data that you just can’t live without – copy it somewhere safe – don’t leave it until tomorrow.
