Genius Bar, The Epilogue

The best $6 that I ever spent, was my first month's subscription to Mozy. I am sitting here watching 9,000 photos stream across my iPhoto from this backup site, on an iMac with a brand new hard drive.

Mozy, you saved my memories. Every single photo that I thought was gone. I get to keep the pictures from Europe, our beach trips, the past 9 years of my marriage, our first big move to Boston, and the first steps into San Francisco.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I will never take it for granted again.

Note to readers: Do you just backup to an external hard drive? If so, you need to consider a cloud backup. Your computer and your hard drive usually live in the same place. And let this insurance professional tell you that it's not a good spread of risk!
