→ Do not Wait for a Dataloss to Backup Your Data

Thomas Hawk points out the need for a solid backup strategy:

Mat Honan was hacked yesterday and apparently lost more than a year’s worth of his photos. Like Mat, I too have lost photos in the past. If you shoot enough it’s almost inevitable, unless you are very, very meticulous about your backup strategy.

Marco Arment wrote something similar today too. The thrust of both articles: backup your data in at least two places. As Alex Lindsay says “If data does not exist in at least three places, one of them offsite, it doesn’t exist.”
