The only thing more of a pain in the tuckus (or as we say around the ol’ Gear Diary Facebook chatroom, a PITA) than setting up and maintaining a regular backup of your system is when you don’t do it, and suffer a catastrophic mess. In my case, for example, I had been diligently backing up my system to a local external hard disk, when the external hard disk failed. But before I could go in and get myself a new one, the very next morning my laptop hard disk failed, too! What a friggin’ mess! But you don’t want that to be you, so maybe CrashPlan is something you should consider, especially when they’re having a Black Friday sale:
