Schofield's Second Law of Computing, states that data doesn't really
exist unless you have at least two copies of it. It's generally accepted
that backups don't really exist unless you have at least three copies
on different media in different solutions, and that deleting one must
not affect or interact any of the others.
The difference between Synchronised and Backups
Firstly you need to understand how synchronisation works. With synchronisation
if you delete a file on your local device it will delete the same file
that is stored in the cloud. Generally speaking this is how services
such as Google and DropBox work they are merely mirror images of what
is on your PC or Laptop. This is generally acceptable for most home
users but businesses cannot afford to have files deleted, companies
need the ability to effectively 'go back in time' they need to retrieve
files created one, two, three or more days previous. To that end companies
use what is known as Incremental Backups these are copies of data on
your PC, Laptop or Server but rather than a synchronised copy a backup
will create a new instance of your data each time you backup thereby
creating multiple copies each different from the other, each one representing
a days work.
