Does anybody really make backups?
All these talk about how Leopard’s Time Machine rocks made me think. Does anybody really make backups nowadays?
The closest thing most of us know about making automated backups is with MS Windows System Restore Utility. What Apple’s OS X 10.5 (Leopard) did with Time Machine is basically the same, but with an added bonus — add some uber-cool animation on the interface.
Leopard may indeed be the best backup utility now, but the question remains — do people really make backups nowadays? There are several common ways people go about doing their backups — CD or DVDs, ZIP drives, secondary internal drive, online storage (e.g. Amazon S3), external storage or NAS.
I used to do my backups on a secondary internal drive. Now, I got that Western Digital MyBook 500GB to backup important files and media from my desktop PC and laptop.
So, anybody else making their own backups?
