Last year, Camp Fire suffered a meltdown of sorts. We lost one of our computers, including our accounting files.

And it could have been easily prevented.

And knowing how to keep yourself safe can make the difference between total collapse and sleeping soundly.

Remember, it’s not a matter of if you lose a hard drive, it’s a matter of when.
