Make sure you have a back up. You should have 3 copies of important files. For example: have one file saved in my documents on the pc, have one copy on your usb thumb drive, and have an automatic back up to an internet based service. Never trust your “digital eggs” to one basket. Hard drives fail frequently. USB drives sometimes stop working properly. Your internet based service could be interrupted by outages. Three copies should be enough to keep you from losing anything.
