I cherish the small personal tools people create as well as my data. The rest I can always pirate.

I have a folder named tools and it's very precious to me. The only problem is transferring the data to a new machine. It's a major pain in the butt to backup your stuff but sure as hell is the only way to save it.

And I don't think I have anything to hide apart from unwanted access to my stuff.

A linux based router configured for NAS with external HDD, backed up manually.

Maybe not the most "hardcore" setup, but consumes little power, so far 0 maintenance, rather cheap (Router and externel HDD is about $120 combined (no joke) and suites my needs well.

* tp-link, linux based ADSL router with daul band wifi, NAS and print server capability ($70 +/-)
* 500GB toshiba external HDD ($50)

Recently, I am following the rule:
"If something is lost, and it can't be downloaded again, then you ain't gonna need it."
This rule works surprisingly well and saves me tons of work to manage and backup big archives.


Four years later. I am still following this rule. There was several cases of lost files. Not because of HW failures, but because of wrong deletes. In most cases, the files was found somewhere on other HDs (home and work computers) and recovered. In the few cases these files was not found, all of them was not needed. Not a single really important file was lost.

I didn't make even single special backup operation.

So if your HDD crashed this very minute and became completely unreadable you would be okay with that as far as data retention goes?

I am sure, if the HDD crashed, I will be able to collect all needed files I created myself from my work computers, from my web sites, and VCS repositories. All needed files I didn't create, I will be able to collect from Internet.

Of course, most of the files on the HDD will be lost forever, but after 1..2 days I will realize I have all files I need and nothing important is missing.
