World Backup Day! on 03/31/2012 13:33:47 MDT Print View

Today, one day before April Fools' Day, is World Backup Day.  So, curious, how many of us here backup our computers -- our contact info, data files, photos, music, etc., etc -- often enough that if our computers should die suddenly, we can get back most all of our files without too much fuss?

And for those who don't do any backup's or don't do them systematically, click here for a quick read on just how easy it really is.  Don't be a fool.  Backup before you truly regret...

I do a continuous incremental backup at home, preserving changes to files.

I send my offsite backup to a pogo device with a raid5 filesystem.

I don't have a disaster recovery plan, but my pictures are mirrored to Flickr and Apple stores my music, mostly.
