Some sort of free data backup service work great for preventing such failures. I use dropbox, and have two main folders: beer and school. As soon as I save anything to either (provided I'm connected to the internet), its automatically uploaded to a server whence I can access it from any computer on the internet. I also have my beer folder shared with my brew buddy, so he can see/download the labels I make, add notes to our file after he brews, etc.
