Enter For a Chance to Win a Free 1TB Hard Drive
It’s super important to back up your design work. You don’t want to miss a deadline due to data loss. it’s super-easy to back up your work, and most operating systems can be set up to back up your hard drive automatically. Personally, I am a Mac user, and I use Time Machine to back up my hard drive once per day. This makes it easy to go back and retrieve, or restore something if something goes wrong.
Here is a true story: I once was sitting there working late at night like I usually do. All of a sudden, my computer started to act strange, and all I could see was the spinning “wait” icon. I ended up having to shut the computer down, but it would never boot back up again. Taking it to the Apple Store, I found out that the hard drive needed to be replaced. It was under warranty, so they replaced it, and I had my Macbook Pro back within a an hour or two.
Normally, if you didn’t have a backup, you’d have to reinstall everything and start from scratch. However, with a Time Machine backup, all I had to do was install the backup from Time Machine, and my laptop was restored like nothing ever happened. I was only down for a total of a couple of hours, not a day or two.
