Before You Take Your Computer In For Service …

It’s a good idea to back up your data. Why? Just read this story from Consumerist. Long story short, the computer place screwed up and now people don’t have their data. The first mistake was not backing up their data. The second mistake was going to THAT computer store. It’s widely known that they’ve failed on multiple occasions. Plenty of blame to go around. I’m curious to know who’s actually doing the recovery service on the store’s behalf, because I’m fairly certain there’s nobody there competent enough to perform data recovery. Hopefully one of the bigger companies will catch wind of the story and offer up some discounted service for the poor couple. Don’t trust the computer place to protect your data, perform regular backups. AND don’t buy the extended warranty! It’s a complete waste of money.
