    Default Do you make backups?

    Hi,
    I'm doing a post for my site and I was wondering do you make backups, and if yeah how often?
    If you do or don't, it'd be great if you could vote on my Poll, and if you use a program then could you tell me here.
    Thanks, Ed

    I personally backup my entire server daily. It has to be done if you don't want to lose any data in the event of hardware failure or unauthorised access.

    Losing a days worth of data would be bad enough so I can't imagine what it would feel like to lose everything.

    I have RAID 1 on my work station, and sync up to SVN. As for personal files and movie/music collection, I don't bother with backups at all (Then cry when I realise I have lost those photos from last x-mass, but never learn my lesson).

    For personal files (eg. photos, movies) you can use a Deleted Files Recoverer, and there are big changes to get them back (or at least a part) ...of course if we're not talking about a hardware failure (dead HDD).

    I back-up most of my server daily to another computer, and important personal photos and files offsite also.
