Carting, storing off-site external devices containing backup images (topic title)
Those of us who are carting and/or storing off-site (away from one's computers) external device containing backup images:
Make absolutely sure that you really know, at least weekly if not daily, where every HDD actually is - and still "is".
I had one of my offsite HDDs either lost, stolen, "borrowed", or sunk somewhere awhile back.
Even though the backups were MR7 and IfW3, the images were not passworded/encrypted.
Upon realizing one was missing - I scrambled to change first my major email accts passwords, then financial passwords, am still changing lesser important passwords.
Years ago, there was a television (and maybe also radio?) commercial -- "It's 10:00 PM, do you know where your children are?"
ReVisiting, rewriting that commercial: "It's 10:00PM, do you really know where your off-site devices with backup images are?"
