[QUOTE=AllanDeGroot;2624568]And while I also emply eSATA externals for backups
I also have an internal drive for my OS backup that I disconnect when not actually making a fresh backup or testing it.
I do my system backups as a whole drive “Clone”
My Data which is NOT on my system drive at all is backed up to
an active internal drive, an inactive internal drive (usually unplugged)
and an external drive.
And data worth saving is worth saving several times.
I have files from the early 1990s that were backed up on tape originally. I have email and fax backups from the same period. I keep multiple copies too on multiple drives with the currently most valuable backed up off-site. I really need to let a lot of the stuff go but just can’t do it out of habit.
