Best backup practices?
by KyleODonn - 2/24/14 7:11 AM
With all the ongoing discussion of backups and their importance, I was hoping someone could give a list of backup policies, programs, cloud services, etc. that I should be using.
I use a backup program to backup my files to a NAS RAID 1 setup weekly. I recently had one of the drives get corrupted so I replaced it but it made me realize that there was no further protection if the NAS died.
I would like to explore the option of having those files backed up to cloud storage to protect against flood, fire, etc., ruining my files.
In the end, what I am most concerned about is pictures. The rest of the files don't need to be backed up beyond the NAS but the photos can't be replaced.
I think most of us who follow these forums could use a simple, step-by-step backup tutorial. Something that we can all follow and implement to the degree that we are concerned; those who just want a simple backup to those who, like me, are terrified of losing files forever.
Any help would be appreciated.
