{31 days of easy organising solutions} – back up your computer

Recently two people told me horror stories that happened because they didn’t back up their computers.

One friend lost ALL her pictures. Included were two trips to the USA. Yes, she took her computer to very clever people to try and recover the pics but alas, they couldn’t get them back.

Please don’t let this happen to you or you may be upset like Connor 🙂

Stop whatever you’re doing right now, grab your external hard drive if you do it like I do, or if you back up to an online system, start the back-up now.

And then set a reminder in your phone/ Outlook/ on a post-it note to do the back-up regularly.

I do mine at least once a month but if it starts running the slightest bit slow, I get nervous and I back up 🙂 And yes, I’ve just put a reminder in my phone.

How often do you back up your computer?

My book, Live Organised, will help you set up the systems you need to make your life flow smoothly. Available on Kindle and as a physical book.

  1. Thanks to you I finally did a back up of my thousands of pictures from the last 2 years. I will make a point to back up more often now. Say once every month

  2. Heather (in Scotland) says

    When first baby was 10 months old our computer crashed. We took it to two places for a week each – no luck. We then sent it overseas (!) and were lucky that they were able to retrieve our photos. It cost an OBSCENE amount of money. And who knows if we’d be lucky enough to get retrieval again?

    I backed up a couple of months ago with all good intentions of doing it monthly but it’s not the smoothest process so I’ve procrastinated. (I put all my photos on Flickr every week so at least I know I could access them from there if need be.)
