I opened up Dedoose1 today to enter the latest data from my research team and discovered that Dedoose crashed last week and they lost everything since March 11. Whoa! It is a good thing that I put everything in Scrivener before I upload it. This has spooked me, though. I am dependent on digital technology and the cloud storage services like Dropbox and Evernote. My WordPress sites back up every day to Dropbox, but what if that goes down? I need to run backups to a thumb drive as well.
