As you gather and enter information into your genealogy program, it is imperative that you back up your data.  There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours entering data and suddenly having a power failure and losing those hours of work.  Even worse is the possibility of a fire, flood, theft or some other disaster that destroys precious data and documents.  A computer crash can destroy your program and its associated files. Because of these possibilities, there are ways to protect yourself.
