Your monthly reminder - BACK UP YOUR HARD DISK
« on: May 31, 2006, 01:59:13 AM »
If you haven't backed up everything of important in the last month - you are way overdue.
This is your reminder that you need to have a backup strategy and policy.

There are lot's of guides about developing a good backup system, find one you like and stick to it.
The one we wrote last year is a bit dated but still useful (http://www.donationc...Archive/BackUpGuide/).

Any thoughts on Cobian Backup? (can't believe this guy hasn't gotten his own site yet!) New 8.x version now out in beta. Haven't tried it yet but I've been very impressed with 7.x

;D ;D ;D Good point!
I haven't backed up my disk.. Ever. Am I overdue? :P
I think it's more work to backup the disk, that to set things up in case of a failure. ;)

And remember: RAID Mirroring is NOT a substitute for backing up.
