So, I’m sending my firstborn to college next month. Well, band camp, then college:D, and I’m full of questions
Today’s topic: how to implement backups. External hard drive, or online.
Forget pictures and fluff. I’m thinking papers, projects, reports and the like. Just the facts, ya know?
Heck, a year’s worth of those would probably fit on an 8 gig flash drive, wouldn’t it?
My thoughts so far:
External HD pros: handy, easy, buy once and done. $100 for 1TB.
cons: failure, loss, over there when you need it here, have to keep up with it.
Online pros: access from anywhere, no limit to space
cons: cost. starts at about $100/year, requires internet access which **could **be dead just when you need to print a psych report for a 9am class.
What say you, college nerds?
And don’t say both!:smack:
