Data Loss…How often do you back up your information?


I first contemplated this subject matter while I was still in the process of writing my first military lifestyle book My Afghanistan Campaign Diary: Views of a Military Spouse. All too often have I heard the words from family and friends "OMG - all my stuff is gone!", but no one had backed up their information. I often worried about losing my manuscript due to some sort of computer malfunction. Consequently I began to back up my work at least once a day, utilizing several different methods.

What do you do to ensure your work is safe? Which medium do you prefer? External hard drives, USB stick, discs (CD, DVD, Blue-ray)? Cloud server? Printed hard copies?
