What is your preferred way to backup your system?

what is your preferred way to back up your files? Are you more into backing up your stuff on a cloud? An external hard drive? Or an m.2 enclosure? Lastly, why is that preferred method of backing up your files?

Personally I have my files backed up on an external hard drive and more recently started using a m.2 enclosure.

  • We use external HDDs & a thumb drive kept in a safe for the most sensitive data.

  • This is the same way I've doing it for years. I've have given some thought to adding an external SSD to the mix.
