    As far as cPanel is concerned, you can download a full backup from inside cPanel. Might be a large file though, depending on how big your site is.

    I thought everybody was living in the clouds these days. Thanks for starting this thread, old timers like me still backup files ( except for the ones we are going to lose of course. :) ).

    World backup day? Sounds new to me.

    I do OS only disk images every 6-8 months or when a major hardware change occurs. My other important stuff is spanned across different disks on 5 different machines.

    I used to maintain 7 active copies of my stuff "just in case" because all my data-loss has occurred with simultaneous multi-disk failures in the past (when 40GB disks were huge). since using older enterprise grade hardware based RAID 1 in all my machines, I have eliminated data loss from a disk failure. However I have still had some "oops" moments, especially when working over mapped disks (no delete confirmation and recovery is hugely hit and miss).

    Don't forget that backups don't just save you after a hard disk failurre. There is fire, theft, flood, and cats eating your computers. :)

    Sigh - you joke, but my cat kicked a mug of coffee all over my laptop frying the entire thing. Take backups, and discipline your cats.

    You say your cat is guilty for the charge of destroy your laptop?

    [​IMG]

    But we don't have enough evidence of that.

    We can tell you the cat is not guilty. Please, listen the explanation...

    [​IMG]

    WOW! Look! A butterfly...

    [​IMG]

    Cough cough...

    After of my long explanation, this jury says: the cat is not guilty.

    LOL! :p:D

    Time Machine is all well and good, but it only being able to back up data from Hfs partitioned disks, no use to me when I primarly use exFat. I use exFat for shared data because most of my tasks in Windows is recording videos which obviously can be anything from a few gb to 100+gb depending on how long you're recording for, what resolution and fps you're recording in and what you are recording. And then I edit everything in Final Cut Pro X. So obviously Fat32 is no use to me.

    It's so damn annoying though, as the amount OS X and Windows decide we'll pretend your exFat disks are raw partitions, so I have to mess around with chkdsk to recorrect that. I so would love to use NTFS/Hfs for those disks but that's obviously not going to be happening. exFat is great, but even though it's natively supported in OS X and Windows, it's not free from these stupid driver misunderstandings lol.

    "chkdsk" that takes me back. I can remember using that when hard drives were the size of a house brick, and had a max capacity of 5Mb. MFM recording as well.

    Seems I'm 10 days late to the party, but yes, I just completed a backup of my 2 hybrid drives (4TB in total!) :D

    Hehe, people here are dealing with TB, I still didn't cross the line of 60 Mb for my website. This is a good idea "World backup Day", when I have seen this topic I wanted to post this reply -no arguments-. About backup, is it possible to schedule an automatic backup to an external web drive or cloud drive for exemple?

    Your cats seems educated and have some prestige Fedora.
