Back That Thing Up! -- A Tale of Hard Drive Woe



+ Add a Comment


Yes, Macs are so very reliable compared to Windows computers ;)



Having found out the hard way a simple 10.6.3 to 10.6.6 update could totally trash the OS - I have two lots of backups.. one is the data is kept on another drive away from the OS, second I have CarbonCopy images going to one partition on a usb drive, and Carboncopy of my data to another partition... That way, whichever goes I have them seperate.

im next looking to backp over the lan to another pc - As the MOD state , you've not backed it up unless it's in at least 3 seperate places, pref with 3 seperate technologies.



It's like I tell my users: "Do you like your sanity? Then do backups. Because one fine day they will save that sanity - not to mention your very butt." (Then they stare at me.)

And do I take my own advice? A little madness now and then is relished by the wisest men... :)

All the best, sir. All the best.
