Taking inventory is a prepping basic. If you don’t know what you have, you don’t know what you need. This is true whether you’re talking about food storage, survival tools, or in the case of today’s episode, your technology preps.
Technology is fragile and this makes keeping track of what we have even more important. An inventory of your important items is just the first step in ensuring that you have some redundancy for when things do break. You don’t have to be a computer or technology expert to do this but even an expert might learn something from this exercise (I did!)
Originally I had planned to cover hardware, software and data in this episode, but the hardware portion ran much longer than I expected. So I’ll be covering the software and data portion in the next episode.
Listen in as I cover:
- Why taking inventory is important.
- What kinds of items should be included.
- What details should you include in your inventory list.
- What benefits are there to having this list even if there is no disaster to deal with.
