For me manual is the best way to go with backing up files, just copy them onto a removable device or into an online account (via the uploader in a browser) whenever you finish working on them for the night. Automating the backup process has higher risks then being self disciplined and doing it manually, because you might not know if an automated one has not been done, or the automated one might sync files and delete from your backup location anything you accidentally delete from your computer.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
