Safe Backups

Cloud backup services like Carbonite and SOS Online Backup are invaluable and can save the day when you data gets lost or damaged, but did you know it’s not enough?  Everyone should be backing up in triplicate.  In addition to a cloud backup service, you should also do backups that you’re in control of.  An external USB hard drive is perfect, coupled with backup software like Cobian Backup or SyncBack that does something called versioning.  And I recommend two external USB hard drives:  One for off-site and one for on-site.  Rotate drives off-site weekely, and run backups daily.  That combined with a cloud backup service is very solid protection against data loss- and gives you the recommended three backups.
