Weekend Backups

Over the weekend I did a backup of my RSS feeds, and created backup files for my WordPress blog.

How often do I do this? Not often enough. So, I've added both items to my monthly task list, and that might help me remember to keep the backup files up to date.

I also have a Maxtor external hard drive on both my computers, and they do an automatic overnight backup.


How about you? Did you do a backup recently?

  1. I do them about once every week, but on and off skip a week so I’m not very strict with this. I know I should do more.
    When I do a backup, it is mostly just my data.

    I have two 8 Gb USB sticks which I swap each week with my in-laws so my backup is also outside of the office. Should disaster happen I’ll have my data safely stashed away (it may be as old as two weeks though).

    There’s a WP plugin that does automatic scheduled backups for you. It’s called WordPress Database Backup and you can get it here:


    I have my db emailed to me every week.
