Really remote backup

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

This caught my eye: Backup Data on the Moon?

Perhaps a little more than you need, but do you at least take yesterday's backup off site every day? Too many companies don't, and in the event of fire, may find that they can easily get back in business but have no data. You may also find that your insurance company actually REQUIRES that you take backup off site.

Nowadays, it's usually pretty simple to automatically copy some or all of your data to a remote machine, but don't depend on that as a replacement for tape or other removable backup. See What about Network Backups to another hard drive? for more on that.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.
