Also, the OP needs to lock up the usb external media devices used for backups in a fireproof and waterproof safe.  If practicing the 3-2-1 backup plan, OP needs to remember that someone is also entrusted to keep the backup media collection safe.

When it comes to backup plans, it is definitely advised to test the software/procedure occasionally...at least once!


(I've swapped internal drives solely to test complete restoration from images created used with Acronis True Image, AOMEI Backupper, Macrium Reflect, Clonezilla, etc....)


Last thing someone needs is to find out their backup/restore plan is useless just when they really need it...
