If you've been writing on a computer for more than a few months, you've likely had something happen to your power, or hard drive, or files that have caused you to lose work.

It's called Second Copy and I strongly suggest you take a look at it. You can try it free for 30 days. I had questions, and the support was quick, polite and helpful.
