    Do you backup your music??

    Hi guys! I got a virus on my pc and I lost music I had on my pc for years it took me a lot of time to store all my fav music and rare songs from Live performance of The cranberries in 1990 till bands like REM (Live Studio version), U2, The Cure, Nirvana (demos) so for this reason, I recommended that you store your most important files with an Online Backup

    Backup????
    Many users have made the mistake of thinking backups are only for big companies or computer geeks, or even just thinking they'll do it when they have time. Unfortunately every single one of those users has either lost data by not having a backup, or they will one day. All computer equipment has a finite lifespan and will fail eventually.

    Most people don't actually have to backup every single file on their computer. This can require a large amount of storage and can take a long time. The critical things to backup are all the files you have created and any software that cannot be replaced. Financial records, word processing documents, legal files, music and the list goes on and on.....

    What Backup to use??
    Personally from now I use ZenOK Online Backup Just add your important files to your online backup. Everything you choose to include will be there for you to download on any computer just by using a web browser.

    Do you backup your fav music??

    I accidentaly deleted almost all of my music once, so I'm glad I did a backup before

    As audio is my business I always keep client data backed up and secure for at least a year
    on 2 x hard drives. I also never let any one drive I use work for longer than a year.
    I generally tend to stick to 500GB drives as they seem most reliable.

    cheers

    It really hurts when you lose files so I have three physical disks on my DAW I then back store current project files and subsequent version on all three drives. I then backup completed projects to an external NAS with raid level1. Bit over the top but if you have the stuff attached to your computer you might as well use it.

    I back all mine up manually to a NAS and have a second copy of some of it on a laptop. Applies to stuff I listen to as well as the stuff I produce

    yep, timemachine + another HDD + DVD's when project is finished

    It is so important to back your music up. Especially if you use Windows....
    I went through the horror and upset of losing all my Cubase files, a lot of them. It is a grim feeling.

    Everyone should keep a back up of all music files as there may occurs various problems on computer or laptop anytime. I have an external hard drive and I kept backup of all music on that hard drive.
