The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Some sites in NHS England, are now considering PAYING RANSOM requests to get files back, because of NO BACKUPS!

To some extent, perhaps... At least if you don't have a ton of files. Because of my photography work  over the past 10 years, I have several terabytes of photos and the thought of getting those into the cloud and paying for ongoing access to that amount of data is not welcoming to me. For that, I still do periodic hard drive backups and then put the hard drives into a storage unit so they're offsite.

But for a lot of my standard documents, yeah, iCloud backup has been great!

Another distinction for Time Machine though, is how you can rollback easily in case of accidental deletion. iCloud is nice because it provides offsite storage, syncing across devices and redundancy, but if doesn't protect against a deletion.

I wish I knew about this tool a week ago.  I would have tried it then.  Great video by a member who has been with EE for some time.  This is their first video and they hope to make more!

I've used AOEMI to clone a hard drive to a SSD before, no complaints.  EaseUS Todo worked well for another time also (but was free) http://www.todo-backup.com/

I think they also used to have a partition manager that was pretty useful, could do tasks outside of the Windows OS limitation.
