Subject: RE: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
A bit OT but I put added a 3TB drive to my "general purpose server/ mythtv frontend" in the living the other day. Main reason is to store pictures from IP cams. It may be a bit ott but dad thinks that 9 token coins disappeared from his collection over the 60 days he was in hospital and there are quite a few people (eg. a carer for an hr each day) that can be around the house these days. I'm not going to back up but hope to be able to look back at recordings should another "disappearance" be suspected.

I'm running the multi platform xeoma btw and am pretty pleased with it. My more natural choice would have been ZoneMinder but I struggled with it's resource usage (seems to be a common problem and one Iv'e also seen levelled at the Windows only Blue Iris - with ZoneMinder, I believe it's often sortable if you have the time and patience) in a past play and have for this opted for a pay for solution for the current 4 cameras.
