xx Please check your backups!
« Thread started on: Sep 29th, 2016, 4:27pm »

It is probable that in the relatively near future I will no longer be in a position to supply a replacement BBC BASIC for Windows setup file (even the 'automated' replacement service via PayLoadz requires my authorisation for every transaction).

Can I therefore ask everybody, and I do mean everybody, to check that they have safely backed up the file they originally downloaded (this will normally be BBCSETUP.ZIP) to a secure archive medium. I would recommend that this be an off-site backup such as a 'cloud' storage service; there are several that provide a Gigabyte or more of capacity entirely free of charge.

In the case of BB4W having been purchased on a CD-ROM I would still strongly recommend that the file (in that case Setup.exe) be backed up off-site to protect against physical damage to, or loss of, the disc. I want to feel comfortable that nobody will be inconvenienced when I am eventually unable to provide replacements (or if they are, that they have only themselves to blame!).
