I recently had a bit of fun on Facebook to make a point to my students and former students.
Of course, anyone who has worked with me knows that I would never lose data. I literally have a backup, a backup of the backup, and an offsite backup in case my studio burns down. Once, long ago, I lost a bunch of composition work when a drive crashed. I learned my lesson.
I thought it might be valuable to those still struggling to get a good system to know how I handle all of this.
