Backups? I usually don't look at that porn for a second time anyway.

Since we are on the topic of backing up... how should I setup a simple backup solution? At the moment I have a 750GB media drive which I'll be upgrading to 1TB or 1.5TB soon and I would like to have a backup of it. What would be the best way of backing it up? Should I do a RAID 1 configuration on it or should I just run a backup service once a week to another drive (external most likely)? Nothing on the drive is extremely important and can always be obtained again but it would take quite a bit of time.

My backup solution needs improving. My irreplaceable stuff (music and pictures) is on the 2 HDDs in my rig (one backs up to the other - not a perfect solution I know), and on my laptop's HDD (this isn't done regularly though). I intend to pick up an external HDD in the holiday sales to backup data to as well. I'd back up online but I don't have money for a big enough solution (80GB overall). All other user data (documents are mostly not used, utility ISOs, games) are backed up just to the other HDD in my rig. When I go to uni I do plan on backing everything up to the second HDD, the external HDD and more specifically either my Google Drive or Dropbox.

 

EDIT: Forgot to add, all backups are done every week with Windows Backup and Restore

Whatever XEB. If you did it right you wouldnt need a "back up".

Just the idea of "back up" sounds so ancient and inefficient.

One giant backup drive that you run incremental backups on. RAID-1 is a good safeguard, but you can definitely still lose important data with it.

I personally manually backup my media with a simple tool called FreeFileSync. It literally just mirrors the files from my media folders to the backup media folder. Once my media is catagorized, its location doesn't change, so I use this simple solution. My important documents folder is also backed up this way.

I use a full fledged backup suite for my everyday OS drive. I usually do an incremental update, but once enough of the increments pile up I'll create a new backup from scratch.
