Gladly. Since few of us work in isolation, and most of us have to interface
with other technical writers and developers, the mechanics of interim file
storage and backup are highly relevant to the process of creating useful and
accurate material.

Maybe you haven't ever lost a file and had to recreate the whole thing by
retyping it under serious deadline pressure, but I think the rest of us have had
that soul-searing experience and understand the importance of appropriate backup
and file-sharing procedures.
