I've published three million words--but almost losing 40K of 'em yesterday was grueling. Back up, people!

Amen! But don't just back up once,if its really important make two or three backup. Back in the days of floppy disks I had two backup disks go bad and only the third saved me.

There should be four copies of anything important:

- Your HDD

- Backup HDD

- Thumb drive that you carry with you, so that most of the time it is geologically disparate from the first two

- Online storage via internet.
