The purpose of a backup is to make sure that your digital data can survive any of the hazards that await. In principle, this is a straightforward process. Copy all of your files to some other device(s), keep the backup somewhere safe, and use it to restore the data in the event of a problem. If you are a one-computer user and everything you want to preserve can fit on one hard drive, it can be nearly as simple as this.
For many of the readers, however, things are not so simple. The images and footage you want to back up may not be on one computer, much less on one hard drive. You probably have multiple versions of the images. For video projects you probably have many additional project files and assets (such as graphics and music). Which ones do you keep and how do you keep that straight? How do you update backups as you work on files? How do you validate the backups so you can have certainty that the archive can be properly restored in the event of a problem?
Let's outline the tools used in backups to see how we can put it all together safely and efficiently.
