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.
email to myself, I did that a few times too.
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 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 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.
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.
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.

My dinosaur computer is slow and my sister was telling me I should get an external hard drive. Can someone tell me if they think this would help and about how much it costs. Do you think it's worth it or should one just get another computer?

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?

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 in future and be on a safe wicket. After all these are all machines, I mean...
