Post subject:  My fears seem to have been justified

Hi Everyone, I posted this on another site as well. One that indicated I had nothing to fear. I have long be wary of keeping music (or photos etc) in the cloud so it is not a surprise that apparently some has been lost. I hope it hasn't happened to you, but I just don't trust cloud based storage. Check out the link below.

Thats why important information should be sotred on back up drives either a internal one or external one in good condition and is brand new drive.
I still have data from 9 -10 years ago cause I get in the habit of backing up

I have a portable Pi system and a main Pi system. Both have their own HDs. One backs the other.

I have 1.2TB of files here so back up is almost an over night job. Also all my iTunes download are on my laptop. Not all my music is here but most of what I have purchased and listen to.

Hi, I considered using a raid system but decided that frequent back ups were fine for me. So approximately once a week I do a full clone of the main drive. Most data (photos, music, designs etc) are on separate external and not connected drives. Some data is stored on CDs and DVDs. I only keep in the PC what I need at the present time. With a bunch of drives going back to the original configuration of the PC ( in this case about 18 months) rotating them so that I can never lose more than a minimum of data on the active drive it works for me. With drives so cheap now you can do this. BTW the main PC is an Alienware I7 / 16GB / Nvidia video / running an Intel SSD.

Good listening
Bruce
