Backing up your data – what do you use?

Backing up your data

We have been looking at the different ways to back up our data.

There seems to be two schools of thought. Either you do the back up using external hard drives and memory sticks. The other is over the internet where the data is held on someone’s server.

With the former you have to remember to do the backing up, but you do have instant access to the back-up data. It is sitting in your office.

The latter you can set up the software to automatically and if your office was to have a fire or flood (perish the thought) then your data is safe.

So what should we do?

What system do you use and why?

    I use Carbonite http://www.carbonite.com, as it’s offsite, very unobtrusive, and backs things up as they are updated.
