Backups are frequently overlooked, particularly on home or small office systems, but they're extremely important. Hardware can fail or be stolen, software bugs can destroy data, and human error can damage a system. Thus, the question isn't so much whether you'll find a backup helpful, but when you'll need it. Linux provides many backup tools, ranging from the standard cp command to specialized backup packages. These programs can be used with a variety of backup media, including tape, removable disks, and optical media. No matter how you use these programs, you should take precautions to ensure that you can recover the data when disaster strikes. Specifically, you should study emergency recovery tools and prepare one for your system.
