Re: Follow me
I still have floppy disks from ancient backups --- both 3.5 AND 5.25!!!!!   Now finding one of those drives to attach is a challenge.   May have to Ebay an IBM 5150 to read them.  Also runs Visiword.  (Now that disk had an encryption scheme for boot that nobody ever cracked).

i have a box of 8" floppy disks too but don't have an IBM S/36 5360 to run them on.

Email too can be a great restoration option - tons of attachments are often resident and can be accessed if needed, of course, by both user and hacker.  Que sera sera.

Previously in school, I used to back up every single one of my assignments on more than 2 devices after saving in my email account. That is how prudent I was when it comes to safeguarding my own data. Organizations should really follow my style!

Backups to the cloud
As primary?????   I use a cloud app for backups but with CAUTION and have local backups, 3 of them, ready to go if something like ransomware hit my system - and i don't open suspect emails OR open suspect attachments.  Ever.  My backups are set ot mirror the drive structure of primary data data and I have used this for my clients as well.  Small business - bad drive, pull and replace - takes 15 min and a screwdriver but the same apples to data center.  Have two backup protocols, not one - Murphy's Law.  It will fail when needed so have two methods and one offsite secure.  Data schedule generally daily - not weekly or random.  Putting trust in the cloud is a fools game, you are exposing data on a second tier of theft - not one but two.
