    I have roughly 200 GB (or so) of product images in my Amazon S3. My question is related to my backup strategy. Should I actually back up that data somewhere else or just leave it in S3? Thank you very much.

  • Is Windows 7 performing a differential backup?

    In Windows 7, I have a backup scheduled at the end of each week (Sunday - Sunday). But I noticed that only one of my drives is backing up to my external HDD. It's a 1 TB drive so I'm thinking that it might be doing a fresh take each time. Do you think it's copying the entire thing again?

  • How can I backup a Git repository?

    In the upcoming weeks, I'm migrating from SVN to Git. But when I was using SVN, I was able to copy my repo folder when I needed it back up. But Git doesn't have that so what do I do?
