Backup…Backup…Backup

As they say, time is money. I say a lost drive with hundreds of hours of work on it is like burning money. Our files are some of the biggest assets we own. We have been designing on computers for over 15 years and have produced more than 9000 completed projects which are on our server or archived on DVDs. Keeping these files avalible when a client is ready to make updates and reprint is a giant task and takes thousands of dollars to do, but is critical to our success. If you don’t have a strategy for backing up your work, I say stop what you’re doing and make a plan. If you put it off until tomorrow you could come to work as if it is just another day and turn on your computer just to find it’s all gone.
