Keeping Your Digital Stuff Safe

Disc driveIf you've ever suffered the pain of losing photos or other valuable data from a crashed hard drive or lost cd, you'll know how fragile digital memories can be. Many of us now own huge amounts of digital data but managing and securing these vast archives is a daunting task.
