For the first post on the Laptop Zen blog, I think I should inform you all on the importance of backups. Hardware will fail, and it is only a matter of time. The number of backup solutions is incredible now days. There is no reason to loose anything, there is so many options, it is just a matter of finding the option or options that fit your needs best. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to experience hardware failure at the must inconvenient time possible, and with no backups, you reach a new level of stress. As I read on a coffee cup once, "Everybody makes mistakes, but to truly screw up you need a computer" and this is why the backup is so important. There is solutions for every device and every file and every situation. I personally use many of the Google solutions, like Google Drive, Photos and Music. It is great taking all those files with me on my phone, without having all of them using all the space on my phone.
