You have to remember that Hotmail is a web-based email service, which is
if you want to save some file you need to down load it to your computer,
then back up your computers files with a zip disk or even floppy disk, I
three different sets, so if one dies I have another set, I should back
up every day
but I do it weekly and for really important files , I make a hard copy
Remember Back Up , Back UP and All computers die sometime, so don't
trust just one of them.
