How often should back up be done?
Depending on the type of device that you are using to make your backups, backups can be quite time consuming, and are somewhat inconvenient to both produce, and to restore from. There is a third step that virtually NOBODY does, which is actually essential, at least from time to time, and certainly the very first time. That step is to VERIFY that the backup is able to be used! I hate to say that even DAT tapes would sometimes not work all that well, and if I hadn't TESTED the backup, I would have never known that they weren't working. Let's say you have a CDR for a backup device. I've just recently found that my wife's CDR recorder is also a DVD recorder. I suspect that because of the greater data density on a DVD that it isn't QUITE as reliable as a CD burner as the manufacturer expected (HP). Consequently, I am totally unable to use CDs burned on her computer for ANY other computer, and sometimes, not even on hers. If I had ONLY this device as a backup, and if I never tested them, I would not have any idea that the "backups" that I was making were useless the day they were burned. Factoring in YOUR personal tolerance for making, testing and becoming familiar with the process, decide which is worse, making a backup, or LOSING the entire work you've done since the last USABLE backup. My rule of thumb is to "Make a backup whenever you'd feel badly if you lost all the work you've done since the last, KNOWN usable backup." If you are a business and have more than a very few transactions per day, there is no question. You make a backup EVERY DAY! That is simply a no brainer. It costs SO little to make a backup, and the inconvenience to you and to your customers is SO great if you lose your financial data, that you simply do it, just as you have your trash hauled off weekly. You can be skillful about it. I used an interesting system to reduce my media expense, which back in the 90's was more of a factor than it is today. With 5 tapes (or other reusable media), I could keep my data fairly secure. Call the media A,B,C,D, and E. Monday Use media A Tuesday Use media B Wednesday Use media A Thursday Use media B Friday Use media C End of month, use media D or E Take home media E or D, (the opposite of what you just recorded above). This gives you a backup that is never more than a day old, insurance against defective backups that is never more than 1 week old, an end of month closing media, which is alternated with the offsite backup (in case of fire or theft) that is no more than 2 months old. With this system, you can recover from all but the very worst disasters very quickly. Naturally, you need to test the media periodically, to detect early signs of wear. If you have a "verify" mode, set that to on, and your software should be able to tell you whether or not you have a reliable copy or not. Take an idle computer system (get one for free at a recycle shop if need be) and once or twice a year, perform a "restore" on your sacrificial system, and operate it for a few minutes. If all your data is intact, and you see nothing out of place, you are probably being proactive enough. Watch out for viruses! If you GET a virus, your backup WILL be infected! The more backups you make WITH an infected computer, the harder it will be to eliminate the virus entirely. The virus ISN'T gone until the backups are clean also... Swapping a hard drive is probably the fastest backup you could make. It involves some inconvenience and expense to set up, but is probably a good deal easier than restoring backup media. I saw a 1.0 TERRABYTE external drive on 2009Jun03 at Staples for $129.99 + tax, which was a closeout price. I suspect that a business could buy 5 of those and forget about any problems for a LONG time!

A regular maintenance function, usually associated with the replacement and adjustment of parts and components in the electrical and fuel systems of a car for the purpose of attaining optimum performance. How to Tune Up a Car Your car should receive a tune-up (often referred to as a "major service")… every two years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. Here's what needs to be done. Steps: 1. Replace the fuel filter. If you have a fuel-injection system, regular cleaning isn't necessary unless the injectors are clogged. 2. Change the spark plugs (unless they're platinum, in which case you have 30,000 more miles to go). Also examine the spark plug wires and replace as needed. A new set of high-quality wires is worth the cost. They may be permanently attached to the distributor cap, so it will have to be changed as well. 3. Replace the distributor cap and rotor if your car has them (some newer models with distributorless ignition don't). 4. Change the points and condenser if you have an older car (roughly pre-1978) that doesn't feature electronic ignition. You'll actually want your points changed, or at least adjusted, every six months or so (if they're changed, check the ignition timing as well). 5. Check the ignition timing and adjust as needed (rare for a car with electronic ignition - post-1980 - and some cars don't allow this at all). 6. Adjust the valves as needed (unless your car has hydraulic valves). Be sure to replace the valve-cover gasket as well, especially if you see oil on top of your engine. 7. Check the belts. Replace if worn. 8. Check the fluids under the hood and replenish as necessary. Change the oil and oil filter if it's been 3,000 miles since the last oil change. 9. Replace the air filter, which should be changed between major services - every 15,000 miles - as well. 10. Adjust the clutch, if you have a manual transmission (although some cars now sport self-adjusting clutches). 11. Service the battery, adding distilled water (if required), cleaning terminals and cable ends. 12. Replace the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. It can make your car run rough or stall if it gets clogged, and it's cheap and easy to replace. Tips: A tune-up isn't a cure all, but when done regularly, it can prevent a host of expensive problems.

Wheel alaignment frequency . If you are noticing any uneven wear on outer edges or center of tread even though you have been diligent in keeping air pressures correct and have not hit a curb with any force or found a mega pothole. Also good idea before purchasing any new set of tires
Answer . Be more specific, Are you talking about the transfer case, transmission, or front differential?
What kind of antifreeze does a 2003 Chrysler Sebring take and what should be done if the gauge keeps going up to hot and then back down and then back up?
Answer . It probably needs a thermostat.. The Chrysler 2.7 litre engine is bad about getting air into the cooling system and needs to have the air bled out. The temperature sensor is located at the top of the engine, just left of the intake manifold as you stand in front of the car. Also, right …next to the air bleed manifold. Be careful, the bleed manifold is mostly plastic and is easy to break. With the car running, attach a preferably clear plastic hose to the top of the air bleed manifold fitting and put the other end into an empty jar or bottle. Now, open the bleed fitting by turning clockwise and watch the antifreeze water mixture air bubbles in the hose until the flow is clear of all air bubbles. It may be necessary to complete this task two or more times. As stated above, the temperature sensor is at the top of the engine and when it is low on water, there is no water reaching the sensor, so when you speed up the engine rpm, the water is pumped up into the top of the engine reaching the sensor and causing the water temperature sensor to show the temperature increase. Low water level shows low temperature readings. ( Full Answer )
In case the data is lost and therefore cannot be recovered unless there is a back up
Typically, a rubella titer is done before the first pregnancy. Chickenpox titer may be done at this time, also. Sometimes these tests are required before getting certain types of work. It is not necessary to get these tests repeated; once is enough.
You get their insurance Information and submit a claim for any damage or repairs to the Insurer
The Importance of Breast Examinations . Breast examination is a way in which early changes can be detected, as survival chances are excellent if cancers are detected early. Self-examination should be done monthly, just after a period. If you would like to learn how to do this, see the Web Link …to the left. This should not replace examination by a doctor, which should be done yearly for women over 40, and three-yearly before this. These checks may need to be more frequent if you have significant risk factors, so ask your doctor how often it should be performed. Self examination should also not replace mammograms as lumps can be easily missed while some types of cancer will not show up as a lump. ( Full Answer )
If, as you say, it needs doing then it should be done as soon as possible. Brake fluid seldom needs changing though it does degenerate over time, mainly by absorbing moisture. The precise detail will be in your manual. The fluid reservoir needs checking topping up occasionally and certainly will… require it after a brake pad change. ( Full Answer )
You have been reading up on stretching your foreskinand want to know whether it should be done while penis is erect or soft your foreskin is easily pulled back when soft?
There are a lot of scams selling products for "stretching" the foreskin. There is no scientific evidence that stretching is possible. If it were, problems like phymosis (or phimosis) (narrowing of the foreskin that prevents full retraction) would never happen.
You should do a tune-up every two years or every 30,000 miles...which ever happens to come first. New vehicles (2000 and up) do not need the typical "tuneup" They are equipped with spark plugs that last at least 100,000 miles, there are no points to wear out and timing and other engine adjus…tments are computer controlled. Just get the normal service as stated in your owner's manual and you will be fine. Two most important things to have done,,,,OIL CHANGES and Fluid checks. ( Full Answer )

backup should be done every 4-10 hours of data entry ( once a week once a month) or even once a day depends how much you use your computer and how often data is changed.
Alignments the manufacture suggests every 6 months. I work at a place that does alignments and I only do them if I see irregular tire wear (might be too late at this point), or if the truck pulls, but the alignment could be out and the vehicle goes straight down the road. So there is no Good answer.… I would at least get an alignment done when new tires are installed and/or new front end parts are done. Hope this helps. ( Full Answer )

4-6 times a week, increasing the amount/how hard you work slightly each day. That means you could start by running for 10 minutes, then do a light jog for 20 minutes. Then, the next day, you could run for 12 and light jog for 20 again. Remember to stretch before each run!
\nMost cars built in the last 20 years need a tune-up at around 80-100,000 miles.
About every 36000 miles or so. Even thou you have DexCool, which is recommended every 100k miles, don't do it. DexCool is death for a engine. Wish GM would just get rid of it, and go back to the good old reliable antifreeze.
My ex said he is going to break up with his girlfriend to be back with you he has done this before to get back with you but you broke up again should i trust him?
I wouldn't. Don't worry you will soon find the right guy. :-) I hope I helped.
Generally every 30000 miles unless you have synthetic fluid, and the transfer case as well.

Every day. Make sure to give it fresh food and water every day when you get up.
Under normal driving conditions you can easily go 7,000 miles between changes. If you drive mainly highway you can go 10,000 between changes. Also change the filter each time.
Never. Sit ups are dangerous. Instead, substitute other exercise (such as crunches or knee-ups) to work your abs. Working your midsection or core muscle groups should not normally be done more than twice weekly. Answer Doing a number of pushups correctly will also improve your abs as a nice si…de effect!

Every time you make a change to the amount of space - for instance, if you buy some new music on your computer. I made the mistake of not backing up my music, and when my hard drive (spelling?) failed, I lost them all.
It is done at your doctor's office during a routine physical. The doctor's gloved finger is inserted into the rectum to check for abnormalities. You should get a routine physical yearly.
it can go as long as years or months or even days it all depends on how bad or how complicated things got to be if things went rogh it could be years if things were rocky then months but if things were super heated then i wouldn't count on it being put back together
Scoliosis is when the spine curves away from its natural position in the middle of the spine. I have scoliosis, but it is a very small case and does not require treatment. The worse the curve, the more need for treatment. If it is a severe case of scoliosis, you may need to be put in a brace to help… keep your back straight. However, when removed, your bones will feel much stiffer, and there isn't much you can do about it. The only thing the situation can become is worse, so try to take care of your body! Sorry I can only answer this half of your question, I don't understand the other half. Hope I helped, though! ( Full Answer )
Most veterinarians will say once a year, but there are some that say twice a year is best. Normally when dogs need to have shots the veterinarian does a quick check up anyways, but just like humans, a dog should have a yearly "physical" just to make sure that everything is as it should be.

To prevent data loss - by having multiple copies, even if one copy were to be destroyed in an accident, lost, or changed accidentally, there will still be another copy. It's also a good way to stop vandalism to data.
A hardrive should be backed up as often as possible. It doesn't need to be done all at once. If you make changes to a file then you should ensure that your backup on that file is up to date.
It is is advisable to get a full laptop service at least once every twelve months. However one should also defragment and clean up files every month and ensure important documents are regularly backed up.
