This. I was backing up an external drive on a very very slow connection. I plugged it in to the machine late in the month, but forgot to turn the power on at the wall. The upload didn’t start and I lost the full backup and had to Re-upload the whole drive.

A good lesson was learned but it hurt. The upload took weeks to complete.
