    Hello Scott, After listening to the show got to say some great advice for all us users out there BACK UP everything I always have (both mobile and computer) a good job to considering about 2 years ago my hard drive crashed if I hadn’t backed up I would of loss it all. Also the password subject that is brilliant advice you guys gave which I do myself and tell everyone I know to do as well because to many people use the same email and passwords for everything.
