Hard drive and SSD drive failure rates and what to do
Over the last 8 years, Backblaze has collected, analyzed, and reported on hard drive and SSD failure. Andy Klein has waded through 166 million records to learn all he can about drive failure and he’d like to share that with you. For example, do different drive models fail at different rates, do bigger drives fail more often, does temperature impact drive failure, and maybe most important – can you predict drive failure. We’ll also compare consumer versus enterprise drives and wrap up by comparing hard drives to SSDs. Join us for a class of what you can really learn from failure – drive failure that is.

Social Media in Genealogy: Keep Moving Forward!
Fri, March 10 2023: 19:00 UTC
There are three new social media tools that can help crowd-source, publicize your research and connect with others who are interested in genealogy – Mastodon, Post and Hive. Mastodon is an ever-growing social network that is becoming a new, popular and thriving place for genealogists of all ages to connect with each other. Post is a social network which has similar qualities to Facebook but could also double as a blog too. Hive is a microblogging platform with similarities to Twitter and Instagram. Join me as I introduce you to these three social networks and show you how to get started.

3-2-1 data backup is great, but first you need to find all of you data
Wed, March 29 2023: 18:00 UTC
By now you’ve all heard about 3-2-1 computer backup. Having three copies of your data makes sense, but this relies on knowing where your data is in the first place. Is everything on your computer? What about the external drive in the closet? Or the SD cards in the drawer? Is some of your data in a cloud application, and what happens to that data if you forget to pay the subscription? I call this problem “Data Scatter” and it is the enemy of the 3-2-1 backup model. It’s hard to back up all your data if the primary copies are scattered everywhere. Let’s walk through the problem and we’ll propose a few things you can do to reign in your data and give the 3-2-1 backup model a fighting chance.
