Cloning, Backups and More Backups

  • Jan 3, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Disasters do happen. You could lose all that work. Here are some of techniques and programs to consider for routine backups: Carbonite (documents on hard drive), Full image backups of the hard drive, Wordpress backups, Dropbox for collaborative documents, Google Docs (good for collaboration, but can it be trusted for backups?), Amazon AWS for videos; rsync, phpMyAdmin, etc. Backup Buddy for cloning, and others. Leo Laporte, the Tech Guy, says that for a complete backup you should always have three copies, each one on a different medium.

    Excellent! Gary had a presentation prepared and encouraged comments. The group was small enough that everyone got to join in the discussion and we had time to elaborate in our introductions. Thanks for asking for introductions by the way, that is important to me, to know where to get help and to let others know what I can help with.

    Jean Bedord was very knowledgable and helpful, she really helped to make the meetup worthwhile.
