I’m All Backed Up!

3 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 3 Flares ×

We have been talking about backing up our computers since my 7 year old was born and it’s all been just talk.  Then, it happened that the company I work for, Collective Bias, needed me to travel to Utah for Bloggy Bootcamp to be a representative for one of our clients, Seagate.

Seagate is the maker of external hard drives, so prior to my travels, I was sent the Seagate Go Flex external hard drive so that I could familiarize myself with the product.  I couldn’t believe how easy the Seagate GoFlex was to use.  All I had to do was plug it into my laptop, download the software, register the product and then back up my computer.

I think if I had known previously how easy it was to back up my important photos, videos, documents, ect, I would have done it a long time ago.  I’m LUCKY I have never lost anything and have never suffered a computer crash.  I know I would be pretty devastated if I had.

Part of my job was to film people telling me their Horror Stories from losing important data from their computers.  My heart broke over and over as I heard stories of years lost that can never be recovered.  Heartbreaking!

I now feel confident that I’m all backed up!

Disclosure:  Seagate is a client and I’m sure they will be thrilled I wrote about my experience, but these opinions are my own.
