Leo, I know how much you talk about 3-“place” backup, and to my sadness, I’ve only talked one friend of mine into Carbonite plus local backup. Recently a friend’s home burned and she didn’t have backup off-site. The External hard drive she had with many things on it was found and physically recovered, (I’ve not seen it yet to know condition) but I’ve told her, even though I always preach about “shopping locally” NOT to take it to a local computer shop, but to contact insurance to see if data retrieval is part of her policy, and…if so, to try to get the drive from inside the tower computer as well and have both of them professionally looked-at, because IF they run at all, it may be a one-shot deal. Are there companies that consumers can afford you’d recommend? Going forward, she’s going to get cloud backup AND…I’ve told her abut LastPass since her book of passwords has now gone up in smoke. She’s grateful for what I told her, and I’m wishing we’d talked about it earlier. Makes me sad I haven’t spread the word as much as I should-have. Any recommendations appreciated. We know the process is not inexpensive.
