Using a Home Server / NAS to keep your data safe

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).
