Back-up and archiving

If you are conducting an oral history project, creating unique recordings, back-up is vital.

You simply MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST backup your archive.

I know of at least one project which had unique recordings stored on a laptop; their premises were burgled and all their equipment - including the laptop - was stolen. 

No backup. 

Now no recordings.

At all.

All their work gone.

None left.

At all.

All gone.

Nothing left.

Everything gone.

Don't let it happen to you.

As an extreme minimum, you should copy all your files on to an external hard drive, and keep it somewhere else - your mother's house, your aunt's, your boyfriend's.
