As I listen to the rain coming down as Andrea passes, I can now give a sigh of relief. New laptop/desktop is set up and ready, awaiting work. SKY Index is re-installed, as are the Adobe Cloud components–Acrobat XI, and InDesign. The Carbonite back-up is set up again for off-site backup, and there is an external hard-drive, and Dropbox.
It’s a such a relief to know that there is a “spare” computer in reserve–with all the same software and backup capability. The lesson learned from this episode: backup, backup, backup–on-site and off-site.
Despite the hassle, I really lost no files, and now that there is a resident backup computer, there will be no lost work time either!
