Tip 3: Back Up
Your Files! Organize Your Files!
Simply put, backing up your files means copying them onto a disk or other device
that you can remove from your computer. For permanent backups, say of your
financial records, you'll probably want to burn a CD and store it someplace
safe. In my case, I'm generally just working on documents and spreadsheets that
don't take much room, so I'll often just use a USB drive and use it to transfer
files from one computer to another. Be sure to test your backup to make sure it
works before you go on to the next step. In other words, try to use one of the
files you've saved to the CD, ideally on a different computer. You don't want to
start deleting your original files until you're sure you have a good backup
