Serato DJ Pro was released yesterday and a lot of DJs downloaded it and upgraded as quickly as possible but when was the last time they updated their bootable backup of their computer? I’d take a guess that a LOT of people updated without running a backup.
I use SuperDuper! to create a backup since I use a Mac for my main computer. It was a no-brainer to purchase this $27.95 program to easily help me keep my backup up to date regularly with ease. If for any reason my computer died I could use this bootable backup hard drive from different Mac and boot directly from it to run my system set up and get by until I could repair or replace my computer.
You can also restore from the bootable backup hard drive to your machine or a new machine to get yourself back up and running if you needed to in the event of a system crash or you need to purchase a new computer for any reason.
If you aren’t running backups regularly one way or another, please look into it today. You don’t want to be that DJ who experiences a system failure and somehow loses all of their music and other files.
And don’t think just because you have all of your music on an external drive that it is any safer than running it from an internal drive. You still want to have a backup drive for that external drive. Basically if you don’t have your files in AT LEAST two places you run the risk of losing all of your music! You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
