No, I'm not talking about essential fatty acids, I'm talking about backing up your data. Imagine this scenario: Your hard drive fails. You haven't backed up your data because A) you were too lazy B) you were too lazy or C) you have been meaning to do it. All of your financials, all of your emails, all of your contacts, all of your digital music and photos are lost forever.

I can't remember either. For the most part, music is digital - and that's a good thing: it's more compact, easier to store and less expensive.
