If I were running a business, I would definitely follow the Tao.

My situation is similar to OG's. I have lots of archival stuff, some active files, and a few personal programming projects. The archival stuff (which would be difficult or impossible to reconstruct) is backed up monthly off-site, as part of the NAS backup. The active stuff is backed up daily to the NAS and monthly offsite. Current personal programming stuff is in off-site repositories.

I obviously use an incremental backup scheme for the daily backups.

If my house catches fire or I suffer a burglary which cleans out everything, I figure that I've got bigger problems than reconstructing the last few weeks of my daughter's homework and such.

The novice became suspicious and said: "Master, is all this 'Tao of Backup' stuff just so you can sell more copies of Veracity?"

The master said: "Now you are truly enlightened."

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
