PAYLOAD;; issue 9
Thanks for joining me.
The only file backup you’ll ever regret is the one you never did.
A good backup posture is to always have 3 copies of ALL your files. The likelihood that all 3 mirror copies will be lost or destroyed is relatively low. With local disks and/or cheap cloud hosting, it’s never been easier to make sure you never lose a photo or document. The big 3 (Google, Amazon, Microsoft) all offer 100GB of storage for less than $5 per month. These are obviously not the only option, but most normal users would probably rest easier with a familiar name. The simple drag-and-drop functionality of these interfaces make it very approachable for anyone to pick up and run with. Also, remember that your trusty USB disk(s) at home won’t have the infrastructure and support that the hosted services will have. A single mishandled beer could instantly destroy the local USB archive you’ve been relying on for years. Scary!
Linux users have a wide selection of FREE software tools to keep (local and remote) files in sync, in addition to any desired cloud services; the cloud services are likely running on Linux servers too!
