If you work at multiple locations, have several desks, PCs, and other files, document management becomes a real headache quite quickly. So I’ve pretty much shifted to doing a lot of my multi-locational work on the cloud via Google Docs and My DropBox. Both of these integrate well in my Windows World, and I can retrieve the necessary documents.
Obviously, I like the fact that these solutions are affordable, but I always dread the day I login to Google to find everything gone. I don’t know exactly how to make backups of my documents, but DropBox stores everything on my machines. Even if DropBox stops working I can carry on and use another way to sync stuff.
Perhaps Google Docs will allow offline synching at one point. Be nice
