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.

  • I do keep a few selected files on Cloud, but local is way better. Just make sure you have at least 2 HDDs with the same backups for redundancy and test them every once in a while. Otherwise you may find yourself someday with a faulty HDD and no backup.
