The Usual Tech Ramblings


Most IT staff already know that most users do not backup their work, that’s what we get paid for. A small survey suggests that most users don’t back up their photos too. That’s fairly obvious from my seat, most home users don’t even backup their computer, why’d they even think to do their pictures. I admit I don’t backup the RAW files from my camera, but all my images are uploaded to my server, so I have 2 copies. I am considering getting a second computer with lots of HDD space to allow for a third backup. I’m thinking of building a mini NAS.

This is where services like Flickr come in handy, or GMail.
