How to backup your data, music producers?

Transcription

[1]
Hey music producer, did you know your data isn’t safe on your spinning platter hard drive or SSD?
And what happens in case of a fire?
Do you know how to backup your data properly?
lets discuss how you can backup your projects and everything else in a safe way

[BUMPER]

inpiration: all shapes and sizes
I had a little bit of a scare this week:
THIS was almost the video for this week [black screen]

[2a]
if it wasn’t for this shiny white box.
which made me think: why not make a video about it.

[4]
THIS IS YOUR JOB!
DATA LOST = MONEY LOST!

[4A]
Everybody thinks it won’t happen to them
not a question IF, but WHEN it will happen

[5]
People don`t realize: Data storage is volatile.
Spinning platter hard disks will degrade over time.
bit rot and bad sectors worst enemy

[6]
But you are not safe with an SSD if you think that.
AND SSD’s have other problems like freezing up over time.
because they have limited amount of writes.

[6a]
other scenarios include:
fire
steals computer
you let your laptop fall out of your hands

[7]
solution: backup.
multiple backups, because you have to realise, Backup disks can fail too
so, what’s the best way?

[8]
A lot of freelancers and small companies use: 3-2-1 method
3 backups:
2 disks on site, 1 disk off site

[9]
a good solution: NAS
No not THAT one, but THAT one. [show NES controller]

[9A]
The NAS backups over the network every hour
Apple time machine [TIME MACHINE]

[10]
the nas has 2 disks, so if one fails, a copy is stored on the other drive
if your computer fails, i have lost only one hour of data.
If it’s super bad, buy new computer, install DAW and up and running with the day

[11]
Redundancy is the key here
Next to my computer I have an external hard disk. backup every day/week.

[12]
So, in 3-2-1, that was number 1 and 2, number 3 is a backup stored on an undisclosed location, far away from my home.
This in case of a fire (steal computer and backups)

[13]
that can be a disk at your parents or your best friend, but there are also online backup services
Security notice here: “the cloud”, other word for someone elses computer

[14]
I hope you learned.
