No, not the kind of backing up that one might do in a vehicle of some description.
Backing up your data.
I was having a twitter conversation with Nutty Cow who was asking stuff about backing up, when it struck me that I haven’t backed anything up for a week.
So now I am sitting here whilst my backing up routines run, erm, in the background.
Here’s how it goes in my world; every week I backup every file on this laptop and Sophie’s laptop on to a 1TB external disk drive (EDD).
And then I do it all again on to my standby 1TB EDD.
Then I log on to my web hosting account and trigger a backup all of the MySQL databases behind my various web-properties and I copy these backups on to my laptop and both of my EDDs.
Then I log on to my various web-properties and FTP a copy of every set of the htm/html, php and WordPress files on to laptop and both of my EDDs.
Why do I go to so much trouble?
I had a disk failure, once.
