Do you know where your data is?
It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when something in your digital life will fail you. Please take some time and money to make sure you have a good backup plan. It’s not that hard, we promise!
As Nate always says, “One Backup is None Backup.” The best way to protect your data is to have a good copy. That doesn’t prevent someone from getting something you don’t want them to have, but it does make sure you don’t lose it. The most important thing you can do to keep your data secure is to have a good backup plan. At the bare
- iPhones/iPads – iCloud (Backing up to iTunes is a great second destination)
- Google – Android will backup some data. This article has some more options.
- Photos – Google Photos Backup, Amazon Prime, Flickr
- Computers – BackBlaze is a very complete backup option. (It’s what Nate trusts after having his laptop stolen twice)
If you are looking for external physical storage, we highly recommend the Western Digital Portable External Hard Drives from Amazon, if you’re in need of fast external storage, the price on these Crucial drives can’t be beat.
Here’s the response. Not bad, but should really focus on having more than one backup:
The concept of ‘one backup is none backup’ means that having only one copy of something, like a file or important information, is not enough. It’s like having only one key to your house, if you lose it, you won’t be able to get inside.
Imagine you have an important document, like your family’s financial information, on your computer. If something happens to your computer, like a virus or a power surge, you would lose that information if you only had one copy. That’s why it’s important to have multiple backups.
So, if you want to make sure that your important information is safe and secure, it’s best to have multiple copies of it in different places. This way, if something happens to one copy, you still have others to fall back on. Like having multiple keys to your house, if you lose one, you still have others to use.”
In summary, “one backup is none backup” means that having only one copy of something is not enough and it’s important to have multiple copies of it in different places, so if something happens to one copy, you still have others to fall back on.
