Backup Strategy: Manual Backup everyday is absolutely annoying for some people. If you are one of them, you have to learn to use the 3-2-1 backup strategy.

If you have a way to connect to the Internet you can use an online backup service like Mozy. You can sign up for a free account that will hold up to 2 GB and you set when it runs and how often. They encrypt all the data in transfer and storage so it is secure. If you have more stuff than that they also offer paid plans.
