Back Up Your Computer!

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m obsessed with backing up my computer files. They contain decades of pictures, tax information, business information and if they were lost, I would be too!

This week I spent a lot of time helping a friend recover over 26GB of files off of an old hard drive that her computer “expert” formatted without asking. If she had more than one backup, this wouldn’t have mattered. Since I’m now a Mac person, I use Time Machine (of course) but I also use a program called “SuperDuper!”. It creates not only a full backup of everything including your operating system, but if your computer hard drive goes down, you can boot right from your backup hard drive. Also, your Time Machine backups can live on the same drive. Go to for more information.
