    Daily .. twice....at 2pm and at 7pm with acronis
    you should back up your pc daily .. if something goes wrong, you will regret it
    I lost all my data like 5 years ago and promised myself that it would not happen again.
    Do it before it happens to you

    I have owned my pc for 3 years now. I have only backed it up 3 or 4 times. I need to do so more often.

    I'm a music producer so as often as possible.

    I once lost over 200gb of music material I created. That was enough to teach me my lesson.

    I don't. I had a lot of computers go thru my hands (100 maybe, including the ones I built for my clients), and I have seen one failed harddrive so far (in one of my own computers, lol). Before it failed it started making horrible sound and refused to to recognized by a motherboard a few times so I had enough time to backup the data. So no, I don't believe in data backup generally.

    You should get an external HDD, leave it plugged in and every now and then, drag and drop your important files on it. Easy as pie!

    Never, not really anything of any importance on any of my computers. I do not even bother using antivirus programs, as they seem to do more bother than good.
