Backup Solutions for OS X | January 19, 2005
At Message we’ve always been very diligent with our backups. We run Retrospect Backup on our server every night. Originally backing up to CD, we now backup to one of two external hard drives which we alternate daily. This means that if one drive fails we only ever lose a days work.
Unfortunately my home backup up routine is far more sporadic, involving burning key files to disk every few months when I remember. This is really bad and I definitely need to implement some kind of cheap and easy home backup solution. Any solution would need to be automatic as I’d forget otherwise. As well as restoring individual files, it would also need to provide me with an easy way of restoring all my files, prefs etc. in the event of a complete system failure.
So I’d be interested to know what backup systems you use for your home or small business, and what backup solutions you’d recommend.
