No backups. In 5 years I lost files only 2 times on an MSI, my macbook and my toshiba rocked the world. Quality -> No Backup.

That was my thought also, untill I lost my house last year in a fire and then years of work is gone.

Living on the edge, I like it, but on the other hand its like skydiving without a secondary parachute.. You loose one life, thats fine.

Hi, I work on windows and keep the projects on a hp proliant server running debian. I use Cobian Bakckup 11 to make incremental backups of my project folder every night, and save them on a Buffalo terastation nas. Once a project is ended i clean it a bit (delete junk files on server) and move it to a specific folder, Cobian Backup will notice it and will trasnfer it from office to home on another Nas, during the night.

I end up having 3 copies of a project:

- 1 clean copy on the server in office

- 1 copy with all junk files on nas in office

- 1 clean copy on nas at home

For me 3 copies isn’t too much especially after two bad experiences that i had. I think the third one is important, keeping a copy far from where you work, for important project is a must, i don’t want to sound pessimistic but fire and burglars are real :D. If a project is long it would be good also to back-up the working progress files from office to home.

My work is scripts and plugins. All actual versions are uploaded to demo websites (I use them for “Live Preview” on CodeCanyon). From time to time I do full backup of websites and upload archive to Google Drive.

I use CrashPlan for $5 a month. Backs up every minute of every day and keeps multiple versions of your files.

Yup, external hard drives updated every day of work. Although it is starting to get messy and busy… There are some great alternative in this topic that might be very useful.

I backup my files in a very conservative fashion: zip up in archives and burn the data on cd/dvd drives. I don’t feel comfortable relying on any third party services, no matter how safe. I wouldn’t say no to vinyls if I’d had necessary equipment :D

Personally, I don’t put much trust on CD/DVD anymore since it depends a lot on your DVD/CD quality and the burning quality. I suggest you buy an external backup HDD, or for more safety you may use Cloud hosting solution to prevent your data from physical damage. You can encrypt or put passwords to your archives if you don’t feel trusted with 3rd party services. Whatever, it’s far more reliable than putting your data on CD/DVD.
