Using a Home Server / NAS to keep your data safe

Server-NAS
Crash recovery is easy if you have already taken steps to preserve your data against virus infections and hard drive failure by making regular back-ups. However when you (or some-one else) accidentally deletes or overwrites a vital document, music track, photo, you will discover how hard it is to recover specific files from a back-up 'archive'. The backup strategy I recommend here will make sure this can be achieved. I also address the common problem of corrupted 'FAT32' directories on removable media - such as USB sticks and camera SD cards (which will inevitably contain irreplaceable photo's).
