Backups 102 and 2FA restore fail

It's not just data that we need to back up. We also need to back up processes. I recently failed to do that and I share a story of woe from my phone breaking my two-factor authentication.

TOPICS

* story about 2FA backup methods

* 3-2-1

* backup to external drives

* consider encryption

* how often? as often as your data changes....

* two local drives - continuous backup vs point in time

HOMEWORK FOR NEXT TIME

* Do you first (next?) backup.

* Extra credit: Do a test restore!
