Long read worth your time: [Wayback/Archive] geerlingguy/my-backup-plan: How I back up all my data.

Via: [Archive] Chris Bensen on Twitter: “Just watched the latest @geerlingguy video on backups (…). Watch it! My personal backups have gone through some changes and it’s currently horrible so I’m going to implement the 1-2-3 backup plan in the new year. Thanks Jeff!” / Twitter

    Nice to see somebody taking it seriously and automating things to make it less of a pain.

    In my case, my iPhone photos and movies backed up to iCloud only occasionally get backed up to a local drive at my office so I’m counting heavily on Apple. I might expand this to start doing a backup to an external drive at home but all those backups are magnetic media.

    My work is all text files and documents for software projects and I back that up to multiple thumb drives that stay at the office, and a few more at home, plus a NAS at the office, and occasionally to DVD that get stored at home and office. I also make sure I burn DVD from different manufacturers to make sure I’m getting different production batches of the blank media, and I sometimes even back up using a different computer to not always be from one DVD burner drive.

    But this is not automated and takes considerable time.
