About 5 years ago the basement of our house flooded and my computer (which I still keep on the ground) was destroyed. The insurance company replaced the computer, but they can't do anything about the files on it. Luckily the only thing I lost was school work and not precious creative work. Since than, I keep my important files on a $10 thumb drive that I keep upstairs in a safe spot. I store some things online, but the entire process can be cumbersome. I was wondering what precautions you take?
