Computer Insurance

I had a small problem in that there was a power surge and my hard drive seized. I lost everything. Pretty much 4 years worth of photos and thousands of songs that I only had in a digital format. I have now purchased a new, larger harddrive and a DVD burner so I can store everything on a couple of discs as well as a battery backup to avoid this problem again in the future. Just a bit of advice for y'all...back up your data. It too can happen to you.

It's going to take me awhile to get back up to speed and upload a bunch of cd's again. The one silver lining is that this happened before the baby came. I will now be better prepared and not lose all of my son's baby pictures due to some randomn surge in power on my street.

Wow, that totally sucks! Sorry to hear that that happened to you. Les and I were just looking at getting some sort of Mac. Mac has a program where you pay $99 a year and have various benefits, including space online where you can back up your whole hard-drive on a regular basis. That alone seemed worth the yearly price. I have no idea how backed-up our stuff is!

Good luck with your new project. :(
