It is extremely important to always remember to only work on plans that are saved on your local machine's hard drive.
Never work on files over a network server, external hard drive, or usb flash drive type device. Not only is working using this method unsupported, it can also lead to file corruption and data loss.
options can, however, be a good way to back up your data, just remember
to always copy the file from that location to your local machine's hard
drive before attempting to work on it. Once it is on your computer,
then you can open the file, make your modifications, save the file, exit
out of the program, and copy it back to the network server, external
hard drive, or usb flash drive device location.
individuals or companies have an off-site incremental backup run every
night, and a full backup at least once a week, so they never lose more
than a day's worth of data should something unexpected occur such as a
computer virus, hard drive failure, or natural disaster.
