    Staff notes

    This setup configuration doesn't have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.


    Level 1
    Just went through suggestions here on Macrium and AOMEI Backupper and most people seem to be on the side of Macrium.

    As a general user, I use my home laptop for images, videos, few Excel, Word files daily and some other applications. I use C: Drive (SSD) for major installations only and use D: Drive (HDD) for saving my files and install some applications. Current space used is around 110GB on C and 600GB on D drives.

    My ISP allows daily bandwidth of around 12GB only. At such, initially, I think I will have to backup almost 700GB on the cloud drive part by part daily. However, my confusion is on Differential vs Incremental backups. So for me, which backup is more suitable and fast, secure enough to store backups on cloud drive and/or external drive?
    Appreciate your suggestions. Thanks!
