Thread Name: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
Subject: RE: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
DaveRo, that ransomware threat is a consideration, part of the reason why I thought about putting the backup on the network and not directly on the main desktop. It might be something I'll have to leave in place but disconnect until I want to do an incremental backup. There is an internal backup that is incremental, something that Windows will do and I set up, but that's helpful only to a point.
Norton Ghost stopped being produced several years ago. That's what I used previously. Win10 doesn't support it, though Win7 did. I guess Symantec decided Windows had the backup needs covered.
