How Recent is YOUR Latest Backup?

Agent Rachelle Gardner has recently blogged about a writer of hers who almost lost a novel due to a hard drive crash. And what every writer should do to avoid that.

Myself, I have just spent a dozen hours collecting up twenty years of writing from various backups and getting it all (or most of it) copied onto a single writing machine. Over the summer, I expect to winnow it down to a single set of organized backups, where everything is actually organized in some semblance of logical order.

The important parts can probably all fit on a single flash drive, big as those are nowadays. That being done, I expect to start moving forward again presently.

Wish me luck.
