Ever since my computer’s hard drive went splat last year (I can’t believe it’s been a year since that happened), my home office has been turned into a fortress of redundant data back-ups. I learned it the hard way, unfortunately, but now my data is secure. Because there’s little worse than realizing you just lost everything.
So now I’m always on the lookout for easy ways to back up large chunks of data. Like, say, this Toshiba 2.0 160G USB hard drive, on sale today at Buy.com for just $49.99 with free shipping.
I’m not saying you have to buy that drive. But it’s a great deal, and if you’re not backing up your data, please do so before I have to come over there and give you a lecture.
