My laptop crashed yesterday and I soon realized how much stuff I didn't backup that was very important. I lost so much stuff and programs, it is going to take me a long time to get everything back and figure out what I lost. I am still running into things and slapping myself thinking, oh no, not that too.
I honestly thought I was keeping everything important backed up, but sometimes you do so much in one day you just forget. I am not that familiar with backup programs and was just manually copying and pasting the things I wanted backed up to my external hard drive.
So my question is.... Is there a program that is a one click solution to backing up the things you want? I had over 200GB of movies and other stuff I didn't really want to backup, so it is not efficient for me to just backup the whole drive.
Obviously now I am thinking of re-organizing my hardrives and will only be using my new laptop (when I get it) for my online biz only and am purchasing a new extrernal drive for backup purposes for just my online biz as well.
I didn't realize how much stuff I would collect and everything, including movies, music, online biz stuff, programs and apps, just ended up being mixed together between my 2 external drives and my laptop.
I will never make the mistake of being that unorganized again.
EDIT: Thank god my brother has a laptop he doesn't use very much, he has agreed to lend it to me until I get another or finish upgrading my main pc.
