World Backup Day

I almost missed it, but today is World Backup Day. I’ve written about this before, here, here, here, and here. PLEASE back up your computers and your websites. Even modern tech can fail and you really don’t want to have to pay for recovery or lose all of those digital pictures and files.

A good rule of thumb is one local, one nearby but offsite, and one online. External drives are cheap these days. Get two. Keep one at home, keep one at a friend’s or in a safety deposit box, and then use Backblaze, Carbonite, Dropbox, or similar for online syncing.

What’s your backup strategy? Discuss.
