The Business-end of the Year – Don’t lose your Dissertation!

Easter is over and if you’re at School, College or University, now is the time it all gets a bit serious.

Whether you’re working on an essay, a multimedia production or an enormous final year project like a dissertation, there is nothing worse than losing your data and having to start again from scratch.

Take a dissertation for instance:  they weigh-in at 10 – 20,000 words plus referencing and primary research.  How many hours does that take in total?  100? 1000?  Even if you can remember roughly what you wrote, do you have the time to go back to the library, find all of your quotes again or go back and repeat your survey?

Just the thought of losing all that work is enough to make you queasy!

We’ve all heard the horror-stories about that ‘friend-of-a-friend’ who had their laptop bag stolen –  with the backup inside.  Make sure you have a backup far enough away from your original.  Make sure you have one thing less to worry about.  With BuddyBackup you can run one backup to a USB drive so you have a backup nearby in case your computer crashes, and another to a friend far away.

Even if your laptop bursts into flame the day before the deadline, you can get your data back and make sure you hand in on-time.

To all of you out there slogging away, remember… save frequently, make sure you back-up, and good luck!
