    Hi there. Thanks for the dropbox.com tip. From time to time I like to reinstall the O\S on my machines. Example, I got a Windows 7 disk. I back up my desktop of course but it’s a pain to always have to restore. Now I use free online tools. I use Google Docs for my documentation and Google sync to sync my work calendar with my Blackberry. This way I never have to worry about backup\restores! And it’s always online reachable from any internet connection.

    awesome article — however what ws the url for the ME.com you mentioned in the article?

    Hetty,

    The URL for ME.com is: http://www.MobileMe.com. Once you create an account, you can just go to Me.com.

    Hope that helps!

    Johnny – thanks for the suggestion for web-based tools, like Google Docs. Do you find that the features are similar? My fear with those is that, particularly with spreadsheets, they will lack in the features department.

    Send Nina a big thank you and get to work using your momagenda – you will wonder how you ever lived without it – then you can always add an electronic calendar on top of that if you even find that you miss it

    Good Luck retrieving everyhting that was lost

    Hi Sarah,

    I’m so sorry about this disaster. Have you tried BackBlaze for backing up all computer files? Only $5 per month and you don’t have to do a thing — it all happens in the background while you are working or while the computer is asleep.
