A while ago, I mentioned how I back up my valuable data to my NAS. In the mean time, I added one more thing to it: a UPS1 so even if the power goes out, it still says up and more importantly, it can shut down safely. This is important because if the power cuts out while hard drives are spinning, the head can damage the disk and you lose the data. The UPC can tell the NAS when it's on low power, so the NAS enters standby safely.
But I said that there is another component to backups, which is …continue.
