What would you do if your house caught fire? I recently met someone this happened to and it really had me thinking.
Once you get past the intial shock then the details set it. What if you lost your whole customer files. (No I don't use the pc to keep my orders on) I'm a paper person. I like paper.
Any suggestions to prevent further nightmares in the event this happened?
My sister had a fire two years ago-total loss. She had a fire proof safe-everything in it was fine...
was it one of those little ones you find at walmart?
I'm a computer person--I despise paperwork--so everything from customer orders, to insurance policies and family photos are backed up in multiple electronic locations, so I never have to worry about losing any of it.
me too, like pinkziab..............everything on pc's and backuped externally..........no worries!
a fireproof safe is best..you can get them at sams and costco for less then 100 bucks.
If you husband or a friend wouldn't mind, have them take your tape backups of your computer to their house or office and keep them there.
We also have in our liability insurance policy coverage for loss of business encase of a fire.
Fireproof safe + multiple computer backups!
Korkyo-use it was one from WalMart and after the fire the company replaced it! You can also buy fireproof filing cabinets. I am not sure about their cost-but I do know they are suppose to be good also.
