Thank You Badge
I probably should but I never do backups of my computer 😬

Servers I tend to backup weekly and high value sites, daily.

Every 24 hours my Site database gets backup using a simple cron job, however, that not a full site backup :( I mean to do FULL backup I need to have a paid based since I'm over 25GB.

I did once backup my Laptop over the cloud with google drive, but very slack this time around.

My computer backs up automatically any time a file is changed or deleted.

How often do you back up your files on your computer/laptop? Have you found that you needed to return to the back up copies for any reason?
I will never forget the first day I lost all my date to virus attack simply because I didn't backup. It all seemed like a joke until it became crystal clear I can't recover any of the files lost.

Ever since then, I have backups done every 3 days and always on every weekend.

I use off-site storage mediums for things such as files and picture, I never do system snapshots as it just isn't something I feel I need to do.

I don't think I've ever backed up my computer. I really should pay for cloud storage on Windows 10 so I wouldn't lose my files. My computer recently shut down on me (the old one I had) and I lost almost all my files.

@Empire I run out of the amount they give you for free. I can't afford it anyway. But Windows 10 doesn't come with very much unless you pay for it. Unfortunately I just disable the cloud storage option every time. It ends up messing up my files because there's not enough room, so I just delete it.

Old ways, get an HDD drive or a portable drive and do a backup to your drive as a recover backup drive. even discs. At times the old ways still work.

Honestly, if I was you, I would go buy a 1TB external hard drive for like $40 and use it, and maybe smaller USB drives for reassurance.

After I lost some important info, I started backing up it on my computer. First of all, I save my email letters (not all of them of course). I use Email Detail Archive for this purpose. This tool allows making copies of emails as pdf files on my hard drive (actually, it has more good options). I should say, it is convenient to have access to the necessary emails, even when there is no Internet connection (I easily worked being on the plane).
