How often do you backup your computer system?

Time to be truthful! So, how often do you really backup your computer system? The majority of us know that we should at least backup on a daily basis, depending upon the type of business, but do we really abide by those guidelines?

There is an argument to suggest that inadequate backup procedures could be deemed negligent and potentially leave website owners open to legal action. What you think about that?

Honestly, I didn't think about backing up my computer until I experienced a hard drive crash. I lost all the files I had there (many years of photos and docs and more stuff). Now I do it monthly, but well, sometimes I forget.

Personally I think you should backup your systems at least once a week or more frequently if you are more active. The cost of potentially losing files and information going back years could be huge.

Surely backup services come as part of your hosting package? If not then I think you need to question whether you are with the right hosting company.
