Bigger, bolder "Could not reconnect all network drives" notifications?

Awesome.

So where do I put the other 9/10 of my porn collection?

Microsoft gives you multiple backups and versioning, in geographically separated datacenters, with redundant power supplies and generators for blackouts.

But top Fark IT wizards will tell you it's better to keep your files safe on one computer at home, like you're holding gold bullion.

While all cloud services are a good idea they are not infallible and should be used with a local back up as well.

I personally use the Icloud(which supports versioning) and Time Machine.

I have 2 4tb drives.  One is local and the other is at a buddy's house.  They round robin each other.

Icloud supports versioning and versioning is also built into Mac OS natively.

It is a cheap easy solution and I would say my data is safe barring something happening to all three backups.

Their anti-ransomware protection is also very good, according to a friend of mine who ran one too many free_porn.exe files off the Internet.

File SIZE limit, not storage capacity limit.

If your entire porn collection is a single 2.5TB video then you're masturbating wrong.
