"Student computers are a pain, they usually crash just as the critical disertation is finished and needs printing and no backup exists."

Even more so when the student's one of your own kids.

Again a long time ago, daughter arrived home after finishing her PhD. Backup was no problem. In fact all she had was the disk with her data on it as she'd used a departmental PC. Trouble is it was one of those proprietary disks so I had to buy a drive to get her data transferred onto something more portable.
