Regular readers of this blog will need no introduction to Ross Kodner, tech consultant extraordinaire. He does some really nice blog posts on his blog, Ross Ipsa Loquitor, and participates in many legal technology-related lists (to pick two of many things i could say about Ross.)
But you really, really, really need to read his post on Great Truths About Data Backup. Afterwards, you probably want to e-mail the link to anyone in your office with any responsibility for back up and tell them to read it! Given today’s law office environment, a catastrophic data loss where there is no current data backup can quite literally destroy your law practice. Don’t risk it.
