Re: Do you honestly think that people here don't back up properly?

2.  Two kinds of media

I'd use two kinds of backup software instead of two media. I don't expect that all magnetic harddrives will fail together.

I agree.  I have no faith in DVDs and they are a management nightmare if you are expected to make sure they are still good.  Gave them up long ago for image backup.  My hard drives cannot all fail at once.  One of them isn't even plugged in, connected, turned on most of the time.

I do wish all drives would have on off switches because I prefer to leave the backup off until I want to back up, but most of the ones I'm getting now don't have on/off switches.
