Friday, February 7th, 2014 | Author:

Globe-BlizzardMuch of the country has become all-too acquainted with a relentlessly frigid villain this winter that goes by the name of… polar vortex. Even saying it can send a chill down your spine.

But the polar vortex hasn’t just reminded us that we need to look out for our friends and family members during cold weather. It’s also reminded us that we need to protect our other loved ones – our tech devices.

If you’ve left your devices exposed to extreme cold for even relatively short amounts of time, it’s always advised to let them come to room temperature before use.

Bootable Backups Made Easy With Drive Genius 3

DriveGenius3By Jennifer Bell, Guest Blogger

One of my favorite tools in Drive Genius 3 is the Duplicate feature. Drive Genius 3’s Duplicate tool serves as a great method to create disk images and device-to-device clone backups. Protect your creativity, work, pictures and events in time by using Drive Genius 3 along with a backup strategy. Developing and following a good maintenance and backup plan eliminates the need for data recovery efforts and increases the shelf life of your digital assets.

Why make a bootable clone?

What if something were to happen to your main hard drive? If you had a bootable clone available you would be able to boot from that clone backup. Heck, you could even take that external drive over to a friend’s house and boot from it by using your friend’s Mac and be up and running again. You’ll even be covered if your Mac was lost or stolen! The Duplicate tool can also be used to make disk images of your flash drives and external drives. Having a bootable clone is a great safeguard and makes it easy to get back up and running.
