Usually I only think of backups when it’s too late. But today, when I discovered that my Endnote bibliography was corrupted and wouldn’t open, I only fretted for five minutes before remembering that after that wicked water incident I started using Backup which automatically backs up various files – and the bibliography is one of them! For the first time ever (lucky I guess) I restored a file, and good old Backup had the last twenty versions of it easily available. Now I’ll never again be annoyed at its nagging that I enter my keychain password so it can connect to dot mac.

And you know, if I hadn’t had automated backup with no human intervention my most recent backup would have been four months old, like last time…
