Protect your dissertation!

The smart folks over at the Savage Minds blog have put up a good reminder post about the need to back up your dissertation to sources beyond an external hard drive, citing the case of a graduate student who had both his laptop and his external hard drive stolen. They recommend using Drop Box. I use Crash Plan, which backs up my files automatically, so I do not need to have a reminder.

Good point Alexandra! I use mozy ( which backs up my files automatically as well. However, it only backs up a maximum of 2GB for free. What's the limit with Crash Plan?
