Protect yourself from the computer crush


Keep your work safe!


You never know when it will happen! This is what happened to us. Our computer crashed – although we have lots of anti-virus software this one got us. Hubby worked non-stop for 12 hours to try and fix it ………..and he did it!!


Having one computer for work – and for fun and ..and … So you see what I want to tell you – lose one – lose a lot. The best thing to come out of this is that I have the removable hard drive that hubby bought for me when I started working, and all my information – THOUSANDS of photos (I have 3 online shops) – were all perfectly safe. The hard drive only cost around $50 - $100 and if the computer were lost it would have saved me my job.Don’t think it will never happen with *MY* computer – just make your life easier and make sure you’re safe. If we couldn’t fix our computer, it would’ve been easy enough to get a laptop, attach the removable disk with all the info intact, and be back in business.

Very good idea...hubby has had his crash twice and it is very scarey. The removable hard drive sounds like good advice. Glad you recovered it.

This just happened to me at work. It was a nightmare. I had to rent a mac, and luckily they were able to save my files...

Another reminder that I should get a removeable HD too. My computer guy mentioned this to me last year. I work two jobs at home and do my Etsy stuff on my system. I do save all my personal pics on disc. My system HD is so close to full anyway.
