Special Presentation …

10:00 – 11:00 (Jan 15, 2022)

“BACKUPS IN A BUSY WORLD” presented by Mark Schulman. 

Given enough time, every hard drive eventually fails, and most often this means that all your photos, all your documents, all your video — everything! — are lost.  And recent evidence suggests that even under the best circumstances, hard drives don’t last as long as previously thought.  Backups are the only defense against serious data loss, and yet most people don’t bother. Discover important strategies to make sure your data is safe with the least amount of trouble.
