I ran across this blog post last week:
My heart goes out to local music composer Roslyn Catracchia. Thieves
broke into her Aina Haina home the other day and stole, among other
things, two computers and a backup drive containing her life's work of
of musical scores and musicals. That includes the musical score for
stage production of "The Princess and the Iso Peanut," which will be
running at the Hawaii Theatre this month… if Catracchia had backed up
her computer using Carbonite, resurrection of the last files would be a
simple download to a new computer.
reminds me of a similar incident a few years ago involving film
director Francis Ford Coppola — someone broke into his house and stole
his computer and backup hard drive and he lost 15 years of photos,
screenplays, and writing. This sort of thing happens all the time.
Lenovo published a report a few years ago that suggested that almost
10% of laptops eventually get stolen or lost.
