Do you keep backups of all your hubs?
We all know that its important to backup our important data, photos and music. Backing up our hubs is a good idea too, even if only to have an easily accessible version to edit offline. Do you store an offline copy of your hubs in text format? If so, do you keep them on a flash drive, SD card, external hard drive, etc...?
Hi jesimpski! I save all my hubs in Word format and back them up on an external hard drive.
Only the ones worth keeping...the rest are collateral damage! and I may remove them onto other sites!
I save them on Word and then print out a copy of my original document on paper. I don't keep a backup of the HP page, other than to share it to one of my email accounts (where I put it in a folder set aside for my online work).
I recommend writers to back up their work and print out a hard copy. It's useful for showing to people in person, and keeping an archive of our work will allow family to have a hard copy when we're gone.
Keep back-ups (and backs-ups of the back-ups) for just about anything I ever write. I figure, I never know what I may want or need to do with all, or part, of anything I've written. I may never go back to something I've written, but it's there (and with dates) if/when I ever need to for any reason. I save some of my own, longer, forum posts "just in case". I even save some of my HP-Answers replies if I think it makes sense for individual reply. It's so "nothing" to just keep back-ups/copies of anything we post online, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't do it. (I don't mean for social sites, but I don't spend time on them. I mean for writing, or "writing-type", sites.)
Here's one reason I keep copies of things like forum posts/answers: People can come on here, ask a question, get a bunch of answers, and use the best answers on another site (maybe one where people get paid for having the best answer). Whether I, or anyone else, bothers following up and checking on that kind of thing depends on the circumstances and particular thing that was written; but keeping copies for reference, follow-up, record-keeping, etc. etc. just isn't a bad idea. You never know when you may wish you had kept copies of something for one reason or another.
Always! If something happened to Hubpages, I could publish them elsewhere.
I keep backup on Word and on a flash drive or disc or online backup. I do this with all documents and photos my ISP recently opened a free online backup system. I am excited about anything free. It takes time to master the procedure but well worth the effort.
I have my hubs on both my hard drive and flash drive. I don't keep hard copies though, too much paper around her already.
Most of my hubs before getting published have been typewritten on my computer so before they get published, they have already been saved in my hard drive and have therefore been backed up. It's better to back them up not solely for hub publication but for future reference and other publication possibilities. Who knows, you could write a book out of them.
It never occurred to me to backup my hubs as I thought Hubpages would always have a copy. Now you've got me thinking and I'm going to look into doing this now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I actually keep copies of all my hubs. I wrote an article about it actually you might want to checkout: http://richardpac.hubpages.com/video/Ho … c-Software

I am often worried of losing data on computer. My worry is very much same on the hubs I wrote. Should a hubber keep backup of his data? If we have a backup, we can meet any eventuality that may arise...
