Something happened to me this week that COULD have turned into one of the most stressful experiences of my life – OK, slight exaggeration, but it wouldn’t have been good! What happened? My computer crashed.
When I say crashed, I mean it fell over in a big way – none of my Internet software would function, Internet Explorer was a goner, Outlook was lifeless and many other programs were terminally ill. For someone that earns their living online, this was not a good situation to be in.
Now, I say that it COULD have been a stressful situation – the reason it wasn’t is because I use a program called Drive Image to back up my entire hard drive in one go (and that includes the operating system). You can then reinstall everything at the press of a button – took me about 20 minutes to load over 5GB of software.
The reason I am telling you this is because I know how much time it would have taken me to install each of my software programs individually – about a day – and this could happen to you.
If you are working online, even just part-time, you should consider this software – it could save you hours of time. Take a look at http://www.acronis.com/.
