Safeguard your genealogical computer files

(Note...see the very beginning of this blog for important steps on how to get started on your genealogy).

We all understand that at any time our computer is at risk of crashing and we stand a chance of losing our valuable files of data, photos, etc. that we have stored on our hard drive. So, we know that it is wise to back-up copies of all our files that we deem very precious to us.

Of course, the same holds true of our genealogical files that we have been adding and storing into a computer genealogical software program. We definitely want to make sure we back-up those files as well.
