BUMP:

Keep your backups safe. Preferably have two backups at different locations at once, so if you bring one with you (eg: a calc), then if you lose it, you still have a copy at home (and online if you got 3 backups)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

A better place, though, once your project reaches final state, is http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=downloads;cat=44 . That way it gets extra visibility :P (and of course ticalc.org as well, for even more visibility)

Are you sure about 57o9?

I tend to just use Dropbox for my online backups

The worst thing I can suggest for any developer is to spend a long time writing a VERY promising program (I mean, this could'dve been published it was so dang good...) and then to test on the calculator without having backed up.
Sir! Sir? Ah yes!
Yes, you sir! You seem to have lost something!
Oh? You don't know? You've lost the game, comrade. Good day!

Yeah, I usually archive it and getting a corrupted archive is rather unlikely.

Well it depends: Just avoid using groups (ERR:VERSION). Archive corruption is rare indeed, but it's always good to backup on the computer from time to time (just make sure to not delete your calc copy afterward before testing it on an emulator in case the PC version is corrupted, because that can happen during TI-Connect transfer)

So glad I'm backing up daily, else I would have lost quite some data today (stupid windows formatting the wrong partition)
