Do you guys back up your hubs?
Hey guys, do you guys back up your hubs locally? I'm kinda wondering if I should. Granted, I only have made a few, but I guess it's never too soon? Also, if you do back up your hubs, how do you do it?
you mean make a duplicate copy in the hardisk or in another website? I usually type my hub in wordpad and save a copy in my hardisk. Same goes with the photos.
I do backup my hubs. What I do is right-click on my hub then select "save as". I save it as an HTML document. This saves the entire page of the hub on your computer's hard drive. If you click on that saved HTML document, it will open a copy of your hub and you shouldn't need to have access to the Internet to be able to view these saved pages.
I'm not entirely sure that this is the best method though because, if you keep making changes to your hubs, will you also be making a backup copy to it all over again? And if you have so many more hubs, it can get time-consuming to back them up one-by-one, not to mention you might run out of computer disk space. So, if anyone has a much better method of backing up their hubs, I'd definitely like to know.
But, in the meantime, I hope this helped. I do think it's important to back up your hubs though.
I write all my hubs as a Word doc then create it as a hub adding pictures and such.
I only keep a word file saved of the hub I made. But, don't keep a backup of that word file.
What I have been doing is typing my hubs out using Google Drive, where it is saved on the Internet and I can access it anywhere (I type on a desktop and a netbook sometimes). When the hub itself is done I save a copy of the typing as a word document from Google Drive and place that and all the photos used in a folder. The folder is titled however the hub is, and then placed in my "HubPages" folder on my computer and on an external hard drive.
No, when I used to take the trouble to write hubs, I did so in MS Word, on the computer, then when I was satisfied it was ready, I copied and pasted it into hub pages. I suppose the original that is left on the computer is a backup to the hub pages' entry; however, I never take the trouble to back up the computer copy on to a DVD, or one of my external hard drives.
I did when I first started. It got to be too much saved on my computer. With my novels in progress. I no longer do. But they are shared with FB, Twitter, and LinkedIn, so I am sure someone has a copy somewhere.
Definitely yes. I write the article on MS Works then cut and paste to HP. If I make changes online, I copy the article again. You would be amazed at how many mistakes I find and correct this way, even though I am very careful. If I delete a hub, I move it to a folder for deleted hubs by topic. I also save my hubs by topic. At the end of each month, I update my flash drive and then make a backup of the flash drive on a bigger one. I work too hard on this stuff to chance losing it, and although what I do is tedious, it has paid off many times for me.
I wonder whether it is really necessary because I believe HubPages has done it already. After investing millions of dollars, it's to HubPages best interest to do so, unless they are planning to close, just like Yahoo Geocities, which is very, very unlikely. Given the very remote chance that this will happen, I guess I will do it only when HubPages requests us to do so. But it is no harm doing it, just in case some unexpected technical hitch, a fire in HubPages' headquarters, or an unprecedented cyberattack crops up.

I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??

The more the number of articles and photos I have increases the more I realize I need to think through the best way to organize them. I currently my blog and HubPages, but will add more sites eventually. I have both content and photos separated by which site they are on, however, sometimes I want...

Do we need to backup our Hubpages articles?In the event of a crash, is Hubpages backed up regularly? Or maybe your account was hacked, or even, good forbid, you did something stupid/accidentally and got yourself banned, would you lose access to all your hard work? I always backup my computer, but...

Where do you save your articles?I always save my articles before I publish online in my pendrive and then make a backup copy in the hard drive and external hard drive. 3 tasks before I shut down the laptop. Do you save your articles in your hard drive? What if it crashes?

I'm starting to panic about the (hypothetical) day HubPages ceases to exist and I lose all my precious work.Does anyone have a plan B? do you take backups? how? are we protected under HubPages Terms and Conditions?

So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as duplicate, so someone must have copied and pasted my new hub. Everything on...
