Backing up to the Cloud

Postby Murray Foote on Sun May 14, 2017 5:02 pm

Recently I realised that backing up to the Cloud can be viable - well, at least if you have an unlimited Plan, as I recently acquired in switching to iiNet.

I ended up writing quite a comprehensive review for the Canberra Photographic Society Blog.

Thank you for sharing it. A sad fact we all have to be aware to prevent loosing our hard work.

What also prompted it was a few months ago when my CPU died and also took out my RAID array. I discovered then that I had a few holes in my backups though I was able to recover most important files from laptop, backup SSD for that, and SD cards.

Thanks heaps, Matt!

I would have replied yesterday but I changed my email and had to wait for Gary to reinstate me. Hopefully I'll get email notifications now.

Very timely Murray, been looking at further backup, as the system I'am using is becoming habit of a chore.
