What we're about

Sponsored by the STC Arizona chapter (https://stcaz.org), we're an informal group of technical communicators from across the (Phoenix) Valley of the Sun, this group meets regularly to chat about trends and issues in technical documentation, editing, illustration, instructional design, web design, and similar fields.

Topics can range from troubleshooting problems with tools such as RoboHelp or FrameMaker to implementing new processes or methods such as DITA or API to helping fellow technical communicators find jobs.

The MPTC meetup is sponsored by the non-profit Arizona Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC). Any dues or donations collected from this site will go directly to the Arizona Chapter STC (and may be tax deductible). You do NOT have to be an STC member to join or participate in this meetup, but non-STC members will pay non-member pricing if attending any Arizona Chapter STC events.

HELP! – What to do when your hard drive fails

Link visible for attendees

Very few experiences are more traumatic than losing all your data to a hard drive failure. An estimated 140,000 drive failures occur every day. If you’re not backing up regularly, you’re likely to someday face the terrifying prospect of having lost all of your essential data (email backups, address books, photos, tax information, the first draft of the novel you’ve been writing, etc.)

In this presentation, a representative of Desert Data Recovery (a premier Phoenix area data recovery service) discusses backup strategies and tools that help avoid loss of data. The presentation also reviews Desert Data Recovery’s services and how the company can help you reclaim your data (and your sanity) if a catastrophic drive failure occurs.
