If you were planning on feeding pickled onions to your laptop then stop it right now. It’s not a great idea.
How do we know? Well we had first hand experience of this recently when a client brought their machine in in a panic (and a stink). The accident happened just a few days before some serious work needed to be submitted, and lacing it with pickle wasn’t part of the plan.
We quickly took the important data off the machine and stored it in a cloud once we managed to boot it up.
We fixed the machine and we were once again left to lecture someone about the importance of taking a backup of your data.
Stored amongst the important proposals were family pictures and music. Losing your work is one thing but Aunty Margaret and Van Halen? That’s a risk too far, surely?
Dropbox or Microsoft OneDrive can save you from a real pickle so please install them or give us a call and we’ll get you set up.
