Things of importance
- Family photos/videos
- scanned docs
- license/registration information for software
- Everything else.
How to backup, rule of 3-2-1
3 – (three) copies of everything of importance.
2 – (two) media types at least. Remember floppies? Remember Zip disks? Beta tapes… yeah…
1 – (one) off site copy. Home burns down… you’re fine, data wise… and insurance for the rest.
So, how do I implement this:
- BTsync/dropbox/box.com, to get offsite backups running quick and easy. Sparkle share was a little too much effort, needing a git repo.
- BT Sync, will make multiple copies easily across your network, with super ease.
- my amazon ec2 instance will be a offsite node, which can then push to glacier or s3.
Eventually, I’ll write some crons to do the auto pushing to S3/glacier. I’ll share them once I do (2014-08-03)
