Struggles with a Hard Drive failure - 2011

Why a good backup strategy is important.

James Nagy 0 3541 Article rating: No rating

I would like to think that I run a fairly well organized reliable configuration for my main production machine and for the last four years things have been mostly stable.  Sure I had a blow out of my video card a couple of years ago, but I wasn’t really worried about my data then.  I run a nice Mac Pro configuration that I have updated over the years.  A 240Gb SSD boot drive that makes things nice and quick.  A 1Tb main hard drive that just held my user folder and a 250Gb time machine disk that kept my important stuff backed up.  I am a Dropbox user so all of my documents are really stored in the cloud and I use IMAP email so they are stored in the cloud as well.  Yea cloud…

So there it was the dreaded spinning beach ball…
