A long time ago I wrote up some ideas on backing up your data which I placed on this site. My solutions then relied on things like DOS batch files, and had you backing up to zip disks and magnetic tapes. I think there were some good ideas there, but the technology and the environment has changed so much that I thought I really needed to update everything for the 21st century. So here is my 2010 version of the Backup How-To.
