  1. Perfect timing, I just was thinking I need a better solution to back-up. This discussion has made me not touch anything until I order and receive a DroBo system. Thanks for helping decide on what the best solution for my back up should be. Also signed up for Amazon Glacier. Now how do I figure out how to back up when I am living in two places???? A constant worry for me.

  2. I am interested to know what exactly Mark means by some of the cloud backup services “not being backed up”. (Apart from Amazon). Does this mean that there is only one instance of my data on the provider’s site and if this disappears, there is no other copy? Or does he mean something else? This was a great episode. Lots of food for thought. Thanks.

  3. Big take away from this podcast, is to have your data stored in 3 places (Primary, Backup, Offsite).

    { The “how” you achieve triple redundancy is unique to every individual. Most technical folks suggest RAID, but the majority of users don’t need that extra expense, complexity, nor the headache of technical overhead. Simple advise to those starting out… Backup your laptop/desktop with an external HDD, and make a second backup to store/archive at another physical location. }

    Thanks for the interesting topic Fredrick!
