Backup Software Dont Buy It

Backup Software- Don’t Buy It!
Computer Backup- Forget About It!
Backup Software is​ for the​ birds! Computer Backup is​ too hard,​ too much trouble and a​ pain in​ the​ butt .​
Let’s just forget about it.
Backup Software is​ touted as​ the​ savior of​ your computer’s critical business and personal files .​
They claim that all computer hard drives (where our files are stored) eventually will have a​ 100% failure rate .​
They try to​ tell us that the​ failure of​ our hard drives is​ just a​ matter of​ WHEN,​ not IF .​

Do your backups they shout!
You and I​ know the​ real story .​
the​ real story is​ that new computers are so well made that they almost never fail,​ right?
Therefore,​ we don’t need to​ worry about buying backup software and setting up a​ computer backup system,​ do we? It would just be a​ waste time-- for sure!
After all we know that all the​ press about hard drive failures,​ natural disasters and terrorist attacks is​ just a​ conspiracy by the​ backup software companies to​ get us to​ buy their products .​

Personally I​ never had a​ hard drive failure (that I​ recall) .​
If my computer stops working for whatever reason,​ that’s life.
Therefore,​ I​ ignore these software backup companies that try to​ push their backup software products on​ the​ unsuspecting public even though they make data and file restorations easy .​
I​ don’t give them the​ time of​ day .​
Therefore as​ you​ see,​ I​ don’t need backup software,​ do you? Of course not.
In the​ unlikely event that I​ got a​ virus or​ a​ bunch of​ spyware on​ my computers I’ll just bite the​ bullet and move on​ .​
After all,​ if​ I​ lost all my data to​ a​ virus,​ then so what? Who needs backup software?
Heck,​ I’d just buy a​ new computer and begin again and I’d still wouldn’t need backup software because it’s just too much hassle.
If ALL my business data was lost due to​ a​ hard drive crash or​ virus corruption then I’d just start my business over .​
No big deal .​
It’s not that hard,​ right? Using backup software is​ just a​ pain.
So by now we’re all agreed that using backup software for computer backup is​ just for the​ foolish,​ right? Right.
Who would want to​ use backup software that automatically and easily backs up EVERYTHING on​ your computer hard drive to​ a​ DVD Rewriteable disk or​ USB external hard drive? That would mean you​ could easily recover from any computer disaster .​
That makes too much sense and is​ far too logical.
They claim that backup software is​ a​ virtual computer insurance policy against fire,​ flood,​ theft,​ earthquake,​ hurricanes,​ tornados and terrorist attacks .​

Hey,​ the​ businesses who survived Hurricane Katrina didn’t need backup software did they? OK,​ OK I​ admit a​ lot of​ businesses without backup software and off site backup lost EVERYTHING and now they cannot recover their data and reconstitute their business .​
But that’s life .​
Now these businesses and their employees can now move on​ to​ something new .​
How exciting!
Look,​ life without backup software is​ just so much more interesting .​
By the​ way,​ did I​ tell you​ how much I​ enjoy playing Russian Roulette?
Did I​ neglect to​ mention my brief stay (it was really was only a​ few days) at​ the​ mental hospital? Ahh,​ that’s ancient history .​
Let’s get back to​ the​ present.
Want to​ hear something silly? My friend Ben down in​ New Orleans owned an​ insurance company .​
It made a​ very good living for him and his family .​
He didn’t believe in​ backup software either .​
All his computers were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina .​
Ben just laughed and said,​ No problem,​ this disaster gives me the​ chance to​ write the​ Great American Novel that I’ve always dreamed of​ writing.
What about his 10 employees and his thousands of​ customers he was asked? Ben said,​ Heck,​ things always work out for the​ best don’t they?
What about the​ income from the​ business that supported his family he was asked? Ben said,​ Oh,​ FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) told me they would take care of​ us and not to​ worry.
See,​ Ben is​ all set and is​ none the​ worse for wear even though he didn’t have backup software.
So boys and girls what have we learned about this backup software thing?
* If we don’t have backup software,​ so what,​ it​ just makes life after a​ hard drive crash more interesting and fun.
* After a​ natural disaster that destroys your computers,​ FEMA will make it​ OK.
* All the​ hubbub about backup software is​ just a​ bunch of​ advertising hype to​ sell product.
* Just because you​ like to​ play Russian Roulette,​ you​ aren’t really crazy.

I know another guy,​ Carl Jordan,​ who is​ crazier than I​ am .​
Carl and the​ rest of​ the​ loonies at​ Tweak All Consultants actually believe backup software can save your bacon.
In my own strange way I​ try to​ be fair and balanced .​
if you​ disagree with me check out the​ About the​ Author Resource Box below for a​ link to​ Carl's opposing view.
Now,​ where’s my medication? My meds really smooth me out .​
They also help me forget about rational things like computer backup and backup software.
