Back Up Your Data; It's Your Easiest-New-Year's-Resolution Deal of the Day.
While we are all making, and breaking, New Year's Resolutions, this iOmega 2 Terabyte drive for $200 serves as a reminder to back up your data and hard drive. With USB 3.0 and cheap, high capacity drives, it is easier than ever, and you need to do it now. One of the annoyances I have found with Windows 8 is the hiding of the imaging backup option that was available in Windows 7. I like to do weekly images of the entire drive, so that, in the event of a catastrophe, I have a recent copy of my entire drive available to restore to a new computer or drive. If you like the file based backup feature in Windows 8, that is fine. Just backup now, backup often, and don't call me if you lose your data.
