Do you need to backup your Seedbox?

Posted by Tomothy Garcia on

It’s easy to lose all your files on the server when it is not connected, especially when the files were not completely downloaded or moved to your PC. Figuring out the best backup strategy will help you save your information in case of anything.  You should always get backups for your Seedbox settings and configurations. The backups on your torrents are done just in case you experience some disk failure or a server failure. There are two ways to back up all your data. The service provider can offer backup service, which do not cover personal downloaded files and you can get your own backup for your personal files. When you are hosting torrents and files, always remember to carry out a backup process of your files because the service provider will not recover any of your lost data in case the hard drive fails.

Some of the main things you should think through when creating a backup for your server are the type of storage and what information you want to back up. If you do not have enough space for bigger backups, you should not worry about backing up you downloaded media files. Instead, you should worry about backing up your configurations and other important things. a cloud based storage can be a good backup storage solution. Some cloud based storages offer enough space to store even the downloaded media files. On the downside, you can face some potential issues when trying to access the backups on the cloud storage. Since the files are large, you will need a fast internet to access them.  Changing the permanent storage box with a bigger spaced one will be a quick but expensive fix to your problems. Your back up solution does not matter as long as you keep your files and configurations safe.
