Having backups of my files is necessary especially those that are important. I have experienced losing some files without any copy of them which made me regret of not making a backup file in the first place.

There was this once when our PC was reformatted. Every single file and document was deleted. I thought I shouldn’t have to worry about it but it turned out that I thought wrong. Not one file was left. Another one was when my 1gigabyte flash drive (the one that I won from a raffle) broke andcannot be repaired anymore. So sad—I only had it for two months.

I do not know how it happened but when I tried to check on it, I couldn’t open it on the computer anymore. Many of the people I consulted said that there is no chance for it work again and it needs to be replaced. All my files were gone.

For me to make sure not to lose files again, I always make sure that I have copies of important files whether in my flash drive, on my email or in the computer at school (exclusive for SVs/SAs). Pictures on soft copy are truly important.

As for me, I regularly upload them on my Multiply or Friendster accounts. Unlike the other files, I’m not worried of mp3s and all other songs and music that are saved in the computer. I can always get a new one anytime. I also have plenty of it on cds. I’m glad to know that flash drives nowadays are affordable. A flash drive is really a great help for anyone since you can store your any file there, a good storage for backups.
