Perhaps the worst data loss in history occurred Jan 10, 1896 when a fire at the Commerce Department in Washington DC destroyed the 1890 Census records and years of work went up in smoke.
Data loss is costly. Every piece of equipment, no matter how well it is made, will eventually fail. That includes your computer’s hard drive.
We’ve all heard we need to “back up our hard drives” in anticipation of that event. But most of us either forget or don’t feel we have the time. The best solution to this dilemma is to buy an external hard drive, which plugs into your computer, and automatically backs up your entire hard drive every night.
Hard drive failures are inevitable. And their recovery can cost weeks of your time. Something else that’s also inevitable is the failure of your body. It doesn’t have a back up system. That’s why making preparation for that event today, by getting right with God, is the best way to redeem the time.
