For years I kept my recipes as "hard" copies. The good old fashioned method of keeping recipes on paper within plastic sleeves in binders. That seemed to work well for years but with the advent of the PC I transferred all of them and saved new ones as Word docs on my PC.
That worked well until my PC crashed and I lost many recipes. Now I send them to my e-mail account so I can save them without worrying my computer will crash and I can also do a rudimentary search for what I am looking for.
It is probably not the best system. How do you store/archive your recipes?
