Email docs to yourself! Avoid lost docs.

Hi All,

Quick tip.... particularly useful for those of you working on multiple computers or old computers that sometimes fail...

When you are finished with a draft of a paper or project plan or anything else, email it to yourself. By doing this, you create an instant back-up so if you somehow lose the document otherwise (computer fails, you lose your jump drive, etc.) you will still have a copy in your email.



  1. I've done this before. It's a great idea. :)

    An alternative is to just save it online, like maybe on Google documents. Either way works, though.

  2. I have done this as well. I would also e-mail to another address such as work. If your printer fails at home, you can print it at work.
