This ensures that your digital files are not only safe in one location, but in multiple locations in case something happens. Can you backup to local storage? In this video, Kevin Ames discusses why you need local storage.
- Now, I want to take a closer look at local storage…and what's involved in just that segment of the backup plan.…We start with the working volume.…All of the work that's being done is done on that drive…or that protected storage device.…One backup locally is all you need…and extra local backup is a good idea…because it protects from theft or some kind of damage…that is localized like a flood.…
You'd be surprised at how many floods happen…that have nothing to do with rising rivers.…They're more likely to have with a failed dishwasher…or an overflowing toilet.…A separate local backup on another drive…in another place in the house is a really great way…to make sure that you can get to your data very quickly…in case of one of these minor disasters.…
