Backing Up Two Weeks

The camera on my phone broke, but it worked out really well in the end since the store replace my phone for free. It was under warranty for another 30 days, so I walked with new hardware and didn't pay a cent. It never works like that. Electronics breakdown a couple days after your warranty expires and in the rare instance something will be replaced, you always have to wait a few weeks. The guy swapped out my phone on the spot, but warned that I'd lose everything since my last backup, which was two weeks ago. I told him it wasn't a big deal. I lost a few notes, ideas for these emails, and a bunch of photos I'd snapped on the fly. I didn't want to waste my time saving everything and then going to the store the next day. It didn't bother me right off, but each day the grandeur of the ideas jotted down in my old phone and the importance of the lost photos grows. I would have won awards -- sold prints of my phone photography, but nope, it's all gone forever.
