Ask Slashdot: How do you back up? (Today is World Backup Day)

MrSeb (471333) writes | more than 2 years ago

Software 2

MrSeb writes "Today is World Backup Day! The premise is that you back up your computers on March 31, so that you're not an April Fool if your hard drive crashes tomorrow. How do Slashdot users back up? RAID? Multiple RAIDs? If you're in LA, on a fault line, do you keep a redundant copy of your data in another geographic region?"

I trust the Universe (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#39534163)

If the universe conspires to delete all my data, so be it. I've given the whole issue a good thought, and concluded there's really no data that i personally need to keep at all cost. And yes, i'd had my disk crash 15 years ago, and yes, if it would happen again i'd have no regrets. Still don't believe me? Take as example my old PC. I let it catch dust in a corner because, some day, i should copy my old data, right? 20 months later - all i did was vacuum clean it once. Not copy it's data. It's not important. Neither is the data on this box. Neither is the data on any of my cloud services. Neither am i of significant importance on the scale of the entire universe. Look, it's sunny outside. Now, that is important.
