Save Your Computer

I have the worst luck. I’ve broken five computers and four laptops but I’ve finally learnt my lesson. After losing my work so many times, I have been great at rewriting because I’d never backed anything up.

Take it from me:

  • Even if you backup your work in one external source from your computer, back it up online or in as many places as you can
  • Back up according to how much valuable work you have so if you save work/programs frequently, back up once every week
  • If you have a Windows computer, go onto Control Panel and search “back up”. Click on the first link and follow through from there
  • Do not wait until it’s too late

I may add more information on if I can think of any, but here are some useful links on some other ways to back up your computer:
