Is your computer backed up?

 

This such a good reason to not bank on your computer.

It hit my mechanic recently and they had to pay to get their business files back. Payment can only be made thru bitcoin.

Funny you should mention this today. I spent most of Sunday doing computer stuff. I cleaned out all of the junk I could find and did a couple of backups. I put the entire computer on an external drive and then put some things on the little stick things. I keep one for just music, one for really important stuff, one for 'my favorites' and documents, one for prep stuff and one for just pictures. I have a ton of pictures because I have a really neat jigsaw puzzle creator so I downloaded a lot of colorful pictures for that. So...I'm pretty redundant. I usually end up doing it about four times a year.

 

Not much changes on my computer that often. I did recover 24 GB though and only lost one link that I got back. Now I have to figure out how to get the link back on the task bar at the bottom of the screen. Sigh

 

It's really terrible what happened to your mechanic. Especially when it involved his livelihood. It happens a lot I even with all of the virus software, ad block and firewalls we install. Sounds like your mechanic was held hostage through bitcoin. I guess money isn't good enough anymore.

 

 

Edited: I got the taskbar thing figured out. Drag & Drop. :rolleyes:

Thumb drives are a must around here :-) Then I copy the thumbs onto another thumb and it's in our "faraday" box for the little notebook :-)

:sigh: I suppose it's time again. I don't really have much new....haven't written any stories or chapters on the old ones. I've saved some articles for the information. That's about it.

 

Living on the edge with this wheezing old laptop, I have kept thumb drives fairly current. And...yes, in a Faraday box. Not that they'd do any good if both of our laptops are NOT in a Faraday box. Don't have any extras.
