Backups & 2018 November Letter Writing Challenge

We are beginning the new month with debuting details of our 2018 November Letter Writing Challenge. In addition, I’m encouraging us to make the time to run backups, whether they be of our smartphone contacts and photos, hard drives, our emails, databases and more!

Time for Backups!

Consider this a PSA Reminder on it being time for running backups. You already probably know all of the recurring items that you are dependent on and/or would miss if it were gone. If nothing else, make a top 10 checklist of items and run on a monthly basis. At least it will be a recent backup and has to be better than just thinking about it!

Personally speaking, I run full backups daily for this site always wanting to have the most recent daily post included in the backup. image Autumn Foliage November Header
