    My practice has always been to keep a copy of my site(s) on my hard drive. No biggie with a couple of small sites.

    My latest adventure will likely exceed 1k pages.
    Still no real big deal.

    But, I remember a post by Heyder talking about sites with a million (or more?) pages.

    Do you folks with huge sites keep a copy of your site on your hard drive? Tape drive? Other?

    Always do

    And as everyone would suggest - never take the risk (So you gotta keep a copy always)

    I keep a copy of everything on my hard drive, and after making big changes or adding lots of pages, I burn it onto CDs and store them elsewhere.

    Think about it: your site is your income for many ABWers, and if you were to lose your computer to theft or fire or whatever, your livelihood would be gone.

    Always keep a fairly current copy of your site in a safe place other than your server and on your hard drive, you never know when you might need it, and it only takes a second to do it.

    That PNY USB 2.0 Portable Thumb Drive 256MB for 50.00 will do the trick for backing up 99% of all the web sites out there. My largest bloated site on 384 pages still only takes up 18MB including the images. Heck with carrying around floppies or even CD's. That thumb drive can fit on a keychain

    Is it just me but why arent you all backing up on CD-Rs or if you must and have a huge setup you would like to copy such as your entire OS then DVD-Rs or +R whatever your preference. But I like to recommend once a month full computer backup. Once a week site backup or at least have a mirror of some sort. Like try and keep multiple copies. Also if you are hosting with some providers they provide a backup service. Pay for that. If you have ever lost a site or data you will know that just a big drive isnt the solution. Multiple copies oh and learn from what happened to a friend of mines office. Make sure ot keep your copies AWAY from your computer. Their office was flooded. All the tape backups were right next to the servers... so everything was lost and next to useless. But yeah BACKUP is essential do not rely on your site as a copy. Even those things are machines and can fail too! Especially dedicated servers.

    Have a great day all!

    Firstly concerning myself all future sites will be sql driven and little if any html other than some templates. Also we have a daily backup to another machine. Fire would be my worst disaster but if that were the case I could easily re write everything within a week or two.

    I was using CD-RW for backups but 700meg was not enough so I recently switched to DVD-RAM.. it's great - fast, rewriteable 4.7gig discs - backup anything!

    Everyone has a copies of their published sites on their hosting servers, right? So, unless my computer and better protected hosting servers go down at the same time, I'm pretty well protected.

    Of course, it's always a good idea to keep sites in extra storage, away from your own, computer, escpecially if you have valuable, hard-to-recover stuff.
