Music backup is essential. Haven’t ever had that idea coming to you? Here is a true story to motivate you. My friend Nick, a successful IT analyst, is willing to share his personal experiences of dealing with HUGE data loss and music files back up.
The thing is that outside from his daily job Nick is into DJing and sound producing. Through his musical career he worked with lots of musical sequencers and managed to collect an impressive library of samples. During the last 5 years Nick created around 17 hours of music, which occupied around 30 GB on the hard drive and could make it into tens of interesting projects.
Unfortunately, this never happened.
One day Nick tried to turn his computer on, only to find out the hard drive is no longer functioning. This did mean all of his projects and pieces of music for the 5 years were gone. It’s hard to imagine what Nick experienced at that moment (he seems uncomfortable even today, while telling me this story, 2 years from then). Certainly, no music backup was done. Things became even worse considering the service center said the drive was impossible to restore.
Nick was depressed.
What could he do to save his music (back up music files, obviously)? And how to prevent such cases in the future?
Salvation: Easy Music Backup Tool
Before the whole thing happened, he had never thought about data reserving and music backups (also, Cubase or Friuity Loops Backup software isn’t very well known). However, after the horrific data loss above, Nick developed a keen interest on the subject. Actually, the situation applied right to his daily job – Nick was and still is quite a skilled analyst in IT safety and data protection. So, luckily, the thing he does for a living kicked in and provided the light at the end of the tunnel.
Searching for music backup software and trying different solutions, Nick inevitably found out about Handy Backup. He decided to give it a try and was surprised of how easy and fast working the thing turned out to be (luckily, Nick hadn’t yet a chance to test his precautions in a real data loss situation).
He never was an IT geek or paranoid basement-dweller, just the guy who wanted to make sure another 5 years of his creative life wouldn’t disappear. So, nowadays, Nick backs up once a week and wishes to advise this music backup approach (and Handy Backup 7, of course) to all the musicians, sound engineers and producers and, generally, all normal people!
