Backup Backup Backup - And Test Restores

www.serversidemagazine.com/php/backup-your-svn-repository...

This server was destroyed in the Choteau fire in NE Oklahoma on 11/27. This is why I stress to my clients the need for off-site backups. That's a telephone on top.

 

Any small business owners out there should ask themselves "What would I do tomorrow if none of my data was retrievable". The answer in many cases is "I'd go out of business". Backups are cheap insurance, and if you don't store them off-site, you will regret it one day. Even taking yesterday's tape home with you is better than leaving it at the office.
