Some good stuff in that article, Retro!

I have encrypted login credentials stored on a thumb drive. I also use a password manager that I find very helpful.

The one thing that the article doesn't mention but that gets important is backups. Many people forget that backing up precious files to a separate storage device can keep you from losing them forever. ADHD demands that I not only back up to a secondary hard drive but also to a DVD (or several) and that I schedule this task (or it won't get done).

I always back up on DVDs too although we have a secondary hard drive too! I feel better and safer having both.
