The Importance of Backups Presentation

This is a presentation I’ve given a couple of times now for the LUG on the importance of Backing Up your data, and some techniques and tools for doing it.

@tbaugh The presentation is attached in the main post above. Hope it helps, and Merry Christmas.

Thank you, I have a 4TB drive that SMART status reports as failing. I wonder what the fastest way to backup would be.

@hornedfrog definitely rsync for speed. If you find the copy corrupted, you’ll want to move to dd.

Thank you. I will try this.
