Always make backups of computer files


The main lesson in today’s story is to always backup up your computer files – often and on a regular schedule. I had a stressful lesson in this last week.

The newspaper’s bookkeeping computer had been giving me some indications there was a problem. I’d return to find the screen blank, and it would not refresh. A couple of times, I had to turn the computer off and on to see the screen.

I’m not great at remembering to do backups, but this computer was beginning to worry me so I backed up the bookkeeping program. It worked fine for another week except for the refresh glitch that occurred once.
