The teaching blog is about to restart. My office is being installed.
My first note: a quick tip.
Make backups. Make backups. Make backups.
- I like to make backups at a time of MY liking – not automatically. That way I only back up good files, not errors.
- You need multiple backups. At least 2. Disks are failuires waiting to happen. All of them.
- Of your backups, at least one should be off site.
- Print your photos, too. Good pigment prints on natural fibre paper last.
If I had not moved the disks myself, what could have happened makes me shudder. Do not become part of the “I lost everything” crowd.
