How do you guys maintain data backups?

i manually copy a folder from my main hard drive to an external one, and also to online storage. if there is some data corruption on my main hard drive though, both of my backups will also be corrupted.

Mirror my documents folder to gdrive and copy anything massive to an external. If I did anything important I'd put better systems in place but nobody gives a fuck about shit from ten years ago.

External hard drive I drag and drop to, then leave unconnected when not in use. Also have an old Dell using XP with 700g on it. It’s otherwise useless but it stores a lot.

are you not worried about corruption or accidental changes basically nuking your entire backup?

I use the same, Its insanely fast speeds saved my system several times already.

Important shit is zipped into a heavily encrypted .7z file and uploaded on a cloud host. The rest is just vidya, porn and anime, hardly critical things

I have a Synology Nas with 32tb of space. It receives logs from my laptop and any raspberry pis I have running over rsyslog.

I use syncthing to back up my phone and my laptop's pers directly. I also have syncthing share a "pool" folder for files I want on all my devices. When an experiment finishes it's output to that pool folder so I don't have to analyze the data on the machine that generated it.

My photography stuff is kept on an external drive that is offline, except to rsync to the Nas. It's considered the canonical version of my data.

I'm currently looking into off-site backups. Any advice?

it also works on remote drives and local drives and you can extract deleted / changed files in separate folders

all of you guys seem like you would be boned if you got cryptolockered.

without versioning, and incremental backups, you're going to just mirror the fucked data to all your secondaries.
