For those who are students, or who do research and/or write for a living, the data we have – papers that are due, articles that we are working on – is more valuable than the devices we use to write on. And so anyone who is not currently using Dropbox, or Google Drive, or some other such method to automatically synchronize their data not only across devices but to the cloud where a backup is stored, is taking an unnecessary risk. The image below which friends of mine shared provides an indication of what can happen if one chooses to live so recklessly.
