Backup Recommendation for Users/Customers
This one's for anyone, of course, but largely targeted at consultants and those who advise other home users and small business owners: How do you recommend other folks back up their Macs?
Us geeks know to use SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner, of course, or Time Machine to some network drive (but not a Time Capsule anymore), so I'm curious what the simple/bulletproof backup recommendation is for folks in the field doing this each day?
Here is my setup for backups (belt and suspenders plan) :
1 - For my iMac and two iPads, CCC clones on external old rotation hard drives from the G5 era. For Macbook, TM on another external disk once every other week.
2 - Time Machine on Synology NAS (2 dedicated volumes for iMac (1T) and Macbook (500GB)). The NAS also contain archive files not present anywhere else.
3- Backup of the archive files on 2 x 4T NAS to External 4T drive. TM volumes had to be excluded because Hyper Backup was filling up the ext drive too fast and giving me a "Disk full error" every two-three weeks.
3- Time Machine of main iMac to external 1T MacOS extended partition on a 4T external locally attached rotational hard drive.
4- CCC copy of Archives files from NAS and from Macbook to 3T APFS Partition on the same external hard drive.
5- BackBlase cloud backup of iMac internal HD and external locally attached drive APFS partition.
