You’re sick of hearing it from me. I don’t care.
Back it up. Back it up. Back it up.
- When the Cat Locks You Out, Do You Have a Backup Plan? *note: I now use Carbonite, not Mozy
Today, though, I’m not talking about your blog or your computer — I’m talking about your social media accounts!
A tool that I’ve been using for a while just got a nifty upgrade, and I think it could be something for many of you to check out. Backupify is free for three personal accounts, and you can upgrade to back up more for a pretty reasonable monthly fee.
And it covers a TON of tools:
Plus, it backs up on Amazon’s S3 server, which is super safe.
I have an older account, which means I was grandfathered into older pricing (free, but I get 5 accounts and 2GB of space). So I back up: my work email (on Google apps), my personal email (gmail), Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
I’ve never had to access the backup, and I hope I never will. I still have redundant files — my original photos, etc. But it’s nice to know that someone else is watching my back.
