Don’t be me.
Few days ago I sat down, plugged in my Tails, and…WHAT!?!? IT’S NOT WORKING?!?!?!?!
Okay. This has gotta be a glitch. Unplug. Plug back in. Reboot. STILL NOT WORKING!
Repeat. STILL NOT WORKING!
FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!
WHAT DO I DO!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Panic sets in. I just bought four-figures worth of XMR. I’ve got orders that I need to finalize. Not to mention all the accounts I’d lose. FUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!!
Thankfully I was able to recover my persistent storage…but I’m one of the lucky ones.
Take the time right now – RIGHT NOW! – to make a backup of your Tails. Just go to the damn store right now, buy a USB, and backup your Tails.
It costs you, what, less than $5 and 30 minutes of your time? And not doing so can cost you, what, EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!
Just do it.
You’ll be glad you did.
