BACK UP YOUR NOTES
One of my classmates had her laptop and some books stolen and she's starting from square one. Losing your notes is so easy to prevent. OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Cloud, Evernote, external harddrive. Back it up. Please.
I use one of these services and I generally recommend the notion, but I recommend fully trusting things that are important to you to only one solution. Fortunately it is rare, but errors do occasionally occurs with document syncing solutions and because they have permission to altering files on your system, these errors damage/delete the files from your system.
One should consider an actual backup solution, weather that is copying your school files to a thumb drive, backing up to an external drive, or using a web hosted backup solution, as a fall back solution.
Keep in mind, there are two types of computer users, those that have had dramatic data loss, and those who will have dramatic data loss.
