I wanted to hear about some of your experience regarding the backup of your valuable Unreal Engine projects.
My scheme goes like this:
Main project on internal HDD.
Back-up 1 on same system but different physical HDD (two copies; one copied daily, and one copied weekly)
Back-up 2 on external shock resistant HDD
Back-up 3 on Google Drive
What do you think? Is it a good backup strategy? I am thinking of purchasing a 128 GB flash drive for additional backup. An optical disc option is not valid for me unless I get a blue ray drive. Folder sizes are beyond 20 GBs.
In addition, I have FreeFileSync installed. This is very handy when updating your backup copy. It will just add or modify any changes without having to copy the whole folder all over again. Also, it is very handy for example when I am experimenting with something and it goes wrong, then I easily sync back from the backup to the original folder. It’s like a revert option in Photoshop. Extremely handy!
Care to share your backup plans? I am interested in hearing about your ways of backing up your projects.
