Remember how I was talking about the hard drive I bought? Usually, I have this idea of what meaningful posts are to you all and tonight I will admit that I am not satisfied with my own work – as I sit here typing this post it is past my self-made nightly deadline. But, I wanted to tell you all a story. You will remember my post from yesterday talking about electronic filing and backing up my machine? Well, my best intentions got away on me and I never did pull that hard drive from the shelf. I am telling you this because as luck or fate would have it. I wandered away from my laptop and came back and took it out of stand by only to discover that the display driver had stopped working! Oh I forgot to mention at this point I hadn’t yet backed it up. So I shut it down and turned it back on and it appears luck was on my side as the computer is working as normal and all is well
The lesson I give to you all is don’t wait weeks to use the portable hard drive as I did because sure enough something like this will happen! You will be happy to note that I took the display driver issue as my cue to officially back up my machine so if it decides to crash on me (its an older laptop) I won’t have lost the several thousand pictures I had stored. If there is anything you can take from this post is back up your hard drive I have lost photos before when another computer had it’s hard drive fail and when pictures are memories that last a lifetime why would you not want to back them up?
so, consider this post a friendly reminder to go backup your hard drive
