More Backup Suggestions

I cannot suggest often enough that you need to have a good backup plan in place. I know Ross Kodner has written on this topic, which he calls the most boring topic in legal technology, multiple times.

Certainly, this is not the most exciting topic around. However, WHEN you have a hard drive fail, you will either be very happy that you had a backup or you will curse yourself for not having one. Trust me, the first emotion is much better.

PC Magazine has a good summary article on the best backup tools available.  The article provides great information of the various backup methods available, as well as the pros and cons of each. Plus, the article discusses specific products, both hardware and software that will allow you to accomplish your backup goals.

This is another great article from PC Magazine. If you have not yet implimented a backup solution for both your home and work computers, you need to change that right now. The PC Magazine article gives you to the tools to do that.

A tip of the hat to the Affinity Law Office Technology Blog for pointing out this article.

One thought on “More Backup Suggestions

  1. I couldn’t agree more. Backing up is an often overlooked but critical aspect of any successful attorney’s workflow. In addition to the traditional hardware devices described in the article, I am also a big fan of online backup services, (linked in story), which offer encrypted off-site back up options that can be set to run when you are not using the computer.
