Actually, I use multiple backups. My primary tools are Acronis True Image and SyncBack SE (back when I researched it, it was as good as Cobian).
I image (Acronis) the hard drive on a monthly basis (or just before a software update by the custom software folks that my wife uses). These are kept on another computer and on a removable USB drive that's kept in the office safe.
Then, I backup (SyncBackSE) the accounting software's folder daily to:
1) another drive on the same system (not a boot or OS drive)
2) another drive on another system in the building (not a boot or OS drive)
3) over the web to a dedicated system for this purpose at my home.
(not a boot or OS drive)
Then, monthly, I copy the backup to CD that we store in our home safe.
I'm looking into out of region options also - but haven't started yet.
PS - Everything is automated. The first backup is tied to the evening shutdown of the system and everything proceeds after that. All I have to remember is to setup the USB drive when the image is due, and to put a blank CD in the drive before the monthly copy is made.
