ASSIGNMENT
  1. Change your PAF or other genealogy database to have the date on the end, e.g. Snow-2008-05-22, to see how to do it in your program.
  2. Think through which files on your computer are programs (don't usually need to back these up, but keep the installation CDs in a safe place) and which parts are data (these need backing up).
  3. Open up an account on some free online file storage website and upload a copy of your genealogy backup.
