I can't stress enough the importance of having a safe place to store your precious writing. I learned this the hard way last year when my laptop was murdered by cat piss and I lost almost everything! Being broke as I was--and still sometimes am--I couldn't afford the fee of extracting my files. So there they remained, perfectly useless. After that, I decided to look into online data storage. Something good for my wallet and safe for my pretties.
It was a littl fruitless at first, so I basically set up an email account where I could send my work and also used my webook profile for a while to save some stuff. The only problem with that was that I'd forget to update one and not the other, resulting in a big mess. Then someone told me about this magical site called Dropbox. When you update a file, it updates it everywhere. On your laptop, your home computer, your phone, and even online! How awesome is that?
There is also Carbonite where it's only around 50 bucks a year and Mozy who offers a range of prices to suit your budget. So make sure you have a safe place to store your writing. Accidents happen and memory cards can break. Shop around though--why pay more if you don't have to, eh?
