Here’s a new poll for y’all for the week – how do you handle backups of your personal data? Some people store the entire life digitally and if it were to one day disappear, they’d be devastated. Hopefully most people that fall into this category regularly backup their personal data, but as we all know - that’s not always the case.
I’m wondering the methods / backup locations that you all use to keep your personal data both safe and recoverable.
Select all the backup methods that apply to you. Again, this is for personal data, not necessarily server/business/customer-level data.
- Another Drive on PC
- Local NAS Storage
- External HDD / Time Machine
- USB Flash Storage
- Cloud Storage (i.e. Google Drive, ACD, Dropbox, etc.)
- Friend’s House (i.e. RaspPi colo’d at a friend’s home)
- Self-hosted Solution (i.e. Nextcloud, Owncloud, etc.)
- Print & Filing Cabinet
- CDs & DVDs
- Something Else
- No Backups (YOLO)
