After some research, I think I've found my ideal backup solution. It involves me:
- Manually creating a Macrium Reflect encrypted image file of my data once a week
- Storing the encrypted image file to two external HDDs
- Placing the external HDDs in two different (safe) physical locations
Anyone own one of these? MvixBOX. I'm wondering if it lived up to your expectations.
