JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 11.18.17
I’m guilty, too.
For all my condemnation of people that don’t do it, I’m as bad as they are.
I don’t back up.
Or, at least as well as I should.
I get lazy. I had been backing up my work to a 3 TB Seagate drive. And, for the most part, to a Dropbox account.
But I get lazy and I don’t back up as well as I should to Dropbox. And now, I’m paying the price. Literally.
Last week, I tripped over the cord of the Seagate drive and it fell from the chair it was on, down about 3 feet to the floor. I plugged it back in, and it was fine.
Then I did it again. Oops.
And it wasn’t fine. The drive started clicking. Groan.
I halfway thought about taking the cover off and trying to fix it myself. But I knew I’d just ruin it further.
So, I found the Seagate Recovery Service website, paid the initial fee and got it into the mail.
I need these photos back, and I need it done correctly.
This will be the second spin drive that I’ve had to have fixed. I need to move to solid-state, i think. Or just REALLY big USB sticks.
Or, you know, just back up my work to Dropbox more.
Folks..don’t be like me.
Back up your work.
100 percent of it.

“You have all these experiences and they become part of the collective memory. It takes a while to realize that your perspective is an important ingredient.” ~ Alfred Wertheimer
