August Edition of OUCH! Backup and Recovery

Posted on: August 5th, 2015 by No Comments


We are excited to announce the August issue of OUCH! This month, led by Guest Editor Heather Mahalik, we focus on backups. Specifically, what backups are, how they work and how to create the best backup strategy for you.  Unfortunately, too many people fail to realize how important backups can be.  Just last week, my wife’s hard drive crashed and we lost over 45,000 family photos and 15 years of the Spitzner family history. However, since we were actively backing up the computer with Time Machine, we easily recovered everything. As always, we ask you share OUCH! with your family, friends and coworkers.
