Question about PC Desktops
Essentially the same.
A good backup is a copy of any data you wouldnt want to lose in the event of hard drive failure, theft, fire, etc. A copy of your important data on another medium such as external hard drive, flash drive, cd, dvd, network drive.
I dont consider a floppy a reliable medium, dont use those.
A copy of your data to another partition on the same physical hard drive is NOT really a true backup.
The best is to back up (copy) your important data to a reliable and known good medium and store it in a different location than your original data. Different location meaning, not in your house, but in someone else's house.
Back up today what you dont want to lose if your hard drive goes up in smoke tomorrow. Simple as that.
