Your Backup Tips! Episode 166 was our backup special, and we asked you to share you favorite tools and tips! Thanks for sharing, here's the first batch: @scruffdan tweets "I use @arqbackup for both local and off-site backups. It works very well, runs on macOS and Windows. It backups to multiple cloud providers (including the ultra cheap Backblaze B2), and local drives with ease." @lbdwag tweets, "I'm sure I am not the first to say this, but copying from a client to a Windows file server over a network does require the ability to write to NTFS. That is only a local disk issue (i.e. bootcamp volume while in OSX). #TEKTHING 166"
Tom, aka @DinahMoeHumm tweets, “Probably a good idea to buy NAS drives over time from different lots. I had 2 drives die in my Drobo 5N within 2 days. Replaced those & 1 more died. I use dual protection drives.” He adds, “ For backups between systems, I use Resilio Sync”
