I Don't get my own posts


I posted to the list two days ago and yesterday and have not received copies of my own emails or
answers to the emails. Can't figure out what's happening. Been some months since I posted last week.

>> To confirm: ShadowProtect is unmatched for reliability. (I won’t let

>> Add a second hard disk to your system (or attach it via a USB 3.0 port) and set
>ShadowProtect to back up your entire disk to it, with a full backup once every week or
>so, and an incremental backup daily (or even more often). I also make a full
>ShadowProtect backup on a separate USB 3.0 hard disk once every week or so and
>store it away from the computer.
>> Restore points are often very useful but they don’t always work (System Restore
>didn’t solve a problem for me just last week). When that happens, I restore from a
>ShadowProtect backup; that always works. I use Dropbox to make sure that current
>versions of my documents are always available.
