    Macrium Backups, An Important Lesson for Those Who Don't Backup


    Earlier today I wanted to add a PDF to my iPad. When I tried to drag and drop it into the Books section using iTunes, it wouldn't copy. Further, I noticed that I was unable to sync or backup any devices, nor could I see any of my previous device backups. Oh dear, not good.

    Well, I tried reinstalling iTunes but no joy. It tried installing older versions of iTunes. Still no joy. So I began to suspect the iTunes wasn't the problem but something in Windows or possibly some other software update.
    I started restoring Macrium backups and it didn't take long to find out that the problem started just a few days ago. Running deferential or incremental backups at the end of every working session saved the day for me. Except for having to recover some updated location markers I had made to MyPlaces in Google Earth Pro from yesterdays differential backup, I was up and running again within 20 minutes.

    Lessons are that making incremental or differential backups often is necessary. I do them every day or before I make any significant system additions/changes. Next, get a backup drive or NAS as large as you can afford so you can keep a sufficiently long history of backups, you never know how far back a problem started. The other thing is to separate your data from your OS, I have mine on separate disks so restoring the OS didn't impact my data. Don't wait until disaster strikes, it eventually will.

    Macrium Backups, An Important Lesson for Those Who Don't Backup

    That's what started me using backups many years ago. First Norton Ghost, then Acronis, and now for several years Macrium (by far the best and 100% reliable for me). Sadly, those who really need to read this post will likely never see it much less implement backups.
