I have always considered myself to be a meticulous and organized person. And in a long time, I did not feel that backups were important things, and worth the effort.
Sometimes, people will make mistakes, and delete important files. But that’s not my mistakes. However, a one big accident happened to me and completely change my stance on backups.
