I had a hard drive go down once. Lost everything - maybe that was a blessing. ;D
Thought I'd learned my lesson - started doing backups - then fell out of the habit. Thanks for the reminder - I will start doing it again. :)

Haha as a real ICT nerd have a whole process for that. All my music files of the current year are on a Solid State Drive in my PC. I backup those files regularly to another internel hard drive.
I also bought an external drive (a lot of TB's, isn't expensive anymore these days) and once in a year I copy all my new music files/projects (and private photo's and video) also on that device. I store the device in my parents house. So even if my place burns down, I'll still have all my data, worst case scenario I lose last year's work. Just a tip!
