Advice for the Rookie Realtor

Data backup defies Murphy's Law

Re: ‘Rookie Realtor under attack‘ (Sept. 21)

Dear Rookie:

Just three words: Backup, Backup, Backup. My college computer professor promised us that all data storage disks, whether harddrive or floppies, are destined to fail one day. He did not add that Murphy’s Law would be a corollary to his axiom but you all know that it would be. This backup advice is easily given, not so easily taken. Have your computer guru show you how to backup files; he is probably doing it for the brokerage daily anyway.
