Let’s get backing up this New Year!

So another year is gone and a new one is upon us. Many of us have received or purchased new computer systems for personal use, work or school or will be soon. Nowadays many of us have a great deal of our lives – pictures of family, personal and legal documents and more stored digitally […]

My drumbeat. Backup with Images folks!

Once again I’ve had the frustration of dealing with failed hardware. The system was highly customized with special settings and configurations to enable unique line of business applications and data, plus the ‘regular’ business applications such as MS Office (with custom CRM databases) multiple email accounts and other applications installed after the system was first […]

Get even more Dropbox space right now.

I use Dropbox to synch some files between computers, devices and the web. Nothing very sensitive but it’s great for photos, tech documents and files and other items. It’s also great for sharing items with others; I can upload something, share it (Dropbox gives a link to ‘share’) I then send that link to those […]

Nandroids and other backup tips

So it’s spring time woodchuckers. Time for some cleaning and maintenance for many around that house. It’s also a good time to check your backup plans and procedures for your digital data too. Or if you don’t have any make and apply some sort of plan. You know those stupid commercials about not knowing when […]

Acronis Deal

OK here I go again. Back your sh%t up! I have written many times previously [read here and here and for Macs here ]about the prudence and wisdom of having backups of your digital data. And by backup I mean that your data exists in TWO places at once and is able to be accessed […]

More Free Cloud Storage

I like free and I like options. I already have written about Microsoft’s awesome SkyDrive storage previously here along with other options here. I really like using DropBox to hold my Titanium Backup files; my Android phone (Rooted Samsung Galaxy SII/Epic 4G Touch) synchronizes my nightly automated Titanium Pro backups to DropBox. This provide me […]
