Computer hard drive backup

We all know the importance of backing up our computer hard drives; they don't last forever. At yesterday's BIFHSGO conference talk on Dropbox, Evernote and Online Digital Notes by Tony Bandy, to a room at capacity,  I asked what system he uses for backing up his computer files. Tony is a self-confessed computer geek so should know. He practices double protection.

Tony has a 2TB external hard drive which makes automatic incremental backups on site. There are several brands, some available for less than $200.

He also uses the online service SugarSync which provides up to 5GB of free storage.  I haven't tried SugarSync.

More items for the to-do list which could save you a lot of heartache.

Thank you for sharing! I wish I were able to be in Ottawa for this whole meeting, but it helps to have your comments!
