Backing up PC's to WHS2011 - OS vs Shared pictures

These are all good techniques. An alternative is to continue to keep the files local on the computer and use RoboCopy, CrashPlan, AllWaysSync, or similar to copy the files to the server on a regular basis. These all work; it's just what you find most effective for your own situation.

Yea, I think will at least keep the local copy for now for an extra backup for those 15 years of digital pictures.

Extra backup, where?

If I move my Pictures Libraries exclusively on the WHS box then I won't have a local copy (that I call an extra back up)

If you house burns down......you have nothing.  3-2-1

 

3 copies of the same files

2 copies on different media types

1 copy OFF site.

Yea 3-2-1 is ideal, and something I am moving towards. But got to start somewhere, given a # of my files are currently NOT BACKED UP AT ALL!!!!!

 

The big hole that this forum teeched me to fill was the offsite backup... since if I get robbed or flooded all it gone without it.

Hopefully you will get off site backup in place before anything happens. Honestly, I would make that the 1st priority in your backup strategy.
