I can testify to the importance of having good back ups. Below is a link to a fire we had at the shop January 27th.


Our filemaker server was unharmed however, it was some time before we could get into the server room and I wanted a temp office set up the next day. I used the lasted backup and set up my computer to share FileMaker untill I could get the server back up.


I can also testify on how much better server is than sharing. After using server for over 10 years it was not fun going back to sharing a file, but it did get us going.


Never thought fire would be my best reason to have backups since we are in a metal building. But life is all about the unexpected adventures.


Here are photos of the fire
