In my final year of a degree. All my work in stored on computers. Already have a backup drive which backs up every hour, but just incase, i also have DROPBOX!
It's FREE and it the best thing you could wish for to back up your work. You get 2GB of space, and once you make changes to a document, it backs it up to your space. This means you not only have a back up of the latest saved version, but also back ups of previous versions.
You select the files in your 'drop box'. I store all my uni work in there.
Another great feature, is if your at uni, and don't have your laptop with you, simply log on to Drop Box and download it, show it to a tutor or work on it!
Works so well!!
A Must for all students.
Back up! My brother lost his masters project on a faulty hard drive 3 years ago. Don't let anything like this happen to you!
