OK. You hear about this, but it won't happen to you right. Well it did. We lost all our photos from our computer in our move back from the UK to the US. All our kids photos from pregnancy to now, plus all our photos while we were in Europe and Hawaii.

Do a back up or two. Our only saving grace is our printed photos and shutterfly. It is going to cost a small fortune to have print outs made.

Get an external hardrive or take the time to make back-up cds. Don't wait!

I learned long long ago to back-up. I kept a database for a provincial association on dBase (anyone remember that?) that had three years of monthly statistics on it... we did back-ups but the hard drive was corrupt so the back-ups were useless.

I have an external hard drive that I have my entire computer backed-up to - it is one of those ones that you can work from if your computer crashes. I run the back-up every month or when I've loaded up a bunch of stuff.
