+ - Keeping those photos Forever 3

Submitted by dakkon1024

And now well if one of those photos vanishes, I might be able to survive to post again, but if say the “Peru” or “Colorado” folder vanishes, well it’s been a pleasure being a part of the community. The trouble I’m finding is in designing a backup scheme that recovers from accidental deletion well. I currently do a mirrored backup to the server (Robocopy), then apply a 52 week shadow copy , an offsite backup (Cabonite) & top it off w/ a yearly archive of that data to a USB drive. There are still A LOT of scenarios were accidently deleting a folder and not noticing causes you to lose data, forever. I’m sure others have walked this road, and valued their lives, so I asked what solutions have been implemented."

While yearly or even quarterly archiving is implemented for these users it still seems to be a problem. I’m curious how other people deal with this? What solutions if any have people found? Lastly I believe as storage gets cheaper and larger “archive everything (every change, update, deleted file, etc)” solutions will become available, but what to do till then?"
