Got a reminder from my Mac, ignored it, and hour later Mac completely crashed, absolutely terrifying! Luckily everything’s fine, running a backup now.

So this is a friendly reminder to everyone, especially authors, if you keep putting things off like I always do, do a backup now! :D

Yeaa it’s been far too long for me too… Been telling myself to backup to the Time Machine overnight for the last couple of months. You just pushed me to do it :)

Backups are oh so important and now part of a routine after suffering major data loss a few years ago.

I found a good way now is I simply have a 120GB SSD drive of which I use just for work purposes, on that drive I install dropbox of which I have 100GB. Now all of my work is stored on the drive and in “the cloud” (which I share across my devices) and I also backup to memory sticks on per job basis.

1 TB WD Passport + 1 TB WD Passport (another) + 1 Mac machine with Dropbox for centralized storage. Everything is on regular backup routine. No files are gonna be lost. Total Victory :)

SSD+Dropbox here as well, automatic backups work really well without me worrying about it. Dropbox has a feature called Events, where you can for example track down an incident when you accidentally deleted thousands of files and want them to just roll back (looking at you rm -rf!). Only negative I have experienced is that it may take a few days to upload/download the initial 100GB to/from Dropbox.

If you run a business ( like me ) having your data safe is the first priority. Besides all the work done in all those years, there’s also things like administration, bills, invoices etc. you can’t lose them ( also have printed versions ofcourse ).

I work from a RAID system that always instantly saves everything to 2 harddrives. So if one breaks – i always have the second one with the latest data. Besides that i run backups to 2 other drives every day – that i swap each week. The backupdrive not in use should be in a safe or off-site ( in case a fire or something breaks out ).

So, i’m pretty sure i’m safe – unless….. a meteor hits my town or something :O
