Saved! after a crash
I cannot thank Mike enough for all he has done recently to help us through these computer crises.
The back-up system that had he set up for us has turned out to be a godsend. We have had the bad luck to experience 2 different hard-drive crashes, in the last few months. For the first one - countless architectural drawings would have been lost, had we not put in the place the system he suggested for regularly backing up our system.
In addition to the regular back-ups of documents, when we were discussing what systems I should have in place, he also set up an automatic save of all of my e-mails, and set it up so that I could find and import it.
Since I work with people for negotiated settlements, I have significant e-mail negotion data, which I keep in files, sorted by the case name. When my clients sign the final settlement, I can delete the correspondence that led up to the settlement. This has saved me lots of paper in my files, plus allows me to search the electronic correspondence.
But when my computer died, I realized how lucky I was that Mike had set that up. I had irreplaceable correspondence, with terms that I could not have recreated. Had I not had that information, I would have lost time, money, as well as risked damage to my reputation as a competent business-person, because of having information that I had previously charged my clients for obtaining.
Finally, on numerous occasions, Mike has been very responsive in these crises. For all of this I do offer my heart-felt gratitude and thanks.
