    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 have an exteral HD and I write all of my articles in MSWORD before I publish them.  The external hard drive has it's own software so if I lose my desktop computer hard drive I can always take it to another computer and upload it.  It is automatic too.

      I do the same thing.  In some instances, I also email documents to myself and save it in my inbox.

    I copy them onto Word documents and eventually one of these fine days I'll print them out and put them in a binder somewhere.

    Except for what poetry I may add to an article (which I have copyrights on)  I just work on it at HP and when I finish it I copy and paste it into an email which I save in folders. I use to use folders on desktop until I realized how easy it is to lose everything there.

      i noticed that lots of people use ms word and then email to oneself, is it safe?

    I save the files during development to a word document and email them to myself. I do not download my emails I let the provider maintain them. I have a folder for development work and each work has its own folder with the history saved. Once I have finished editing and proofing the work, I save it in Word Format and PDF format. Then I burn both to a CD of DVD. Emailing a work in progress also provides me with a timeline while I am in development.

      i must try your method, msword and then email to myself. Should I create a email just for my data?

    I save to Dropbox, which saves to the cloud, then I can access from different devices. The Dropbox folder looks like a  normal windows folder, but documents I put in there, get synched up.

    Internal + External hard drive, as well as Cloud storage, is the safest really.

      No Dropbox is free up until a certain size - I've never maxed out ever on Word docs!

    It depends, if I am on the computer then I may save them in Word until later but I usually immediately write them on a list that I have for my ideas.

      same here, i used msword too. Even if i post them online, I would copy and paste in msword later

    I compose and save in Word docunents, and I create a separate folder for each article including all the pictures. Then I assemble on Hubpages.

    Google Drive.  This gives me a backup and since I usually write in Word, regardless of the media I have one place to store everything.
