Backing up

However many articles you read suggesting you back everything up on your computer, my guess is that many homeworkers don't bother until disaster strikes and the horse has well and truly bolted out of the stable door and is gambolling around the fields. This morning, preparing to send out the latest issue of The Shed, my address book suddenly decided to wipe itself clean. Cue feeling of stomach-churning dismay - but only for a second or two since after a complete meltdown a couple of years ago, I now automatically save daily via the .Mac service to my idisk online. Granted, it's still taken me half an hour to work out how to get it all back, but at least it is now back. I'm still a bit shaky though.
