  1. Burn a new CD or DVD every Sunday night and store them at your brother-in-law’s office.
  2. Buy five $200 external hard drives and hope your office doesn’t burn down. 
  3. Do nothing and don’t worry about backup. (We suggest closing your eyes, plugging your ears and repeating “I’m in my happy place, I’m in my happy place.”)
  4. Run a cron job of rsync, gzip and mcrypt piped over ssh to your friend’s server over his DSL line.
