Do not naively rely on your computer hard drive OR just one external hard drive, to keep your cherished files safe.
Got my first virus yesterday and have dropped computer into shop, along with not-working external hard drive.
they have already assessed the hard drive and deem it completely dead and no way of retrieving data. to say I’m heartbroken at the thought of losing 10 years of photos and video clips of the girls would be an understatement. We will take in old dead PC hard drives in and hope that the photos etc may still be retrievable from those. Please cross everything! It would be too devastating to lose it all.
So. Back up your files to not just one, but TWO external hard drives. And CDs too.
Omg… I just checked Danny’s External drive and he thankfully has the photos he has taken with his camera, so we still have SOME.
