Auto is certainly good, since you don't have to think about it and if everything is working correctly, it is covered. However, be careful. You are putting your business in the hands of someone else and no matter how good they are, things happen. I once trusted one of the most well-trusted backup companies in the world and it cost me 72 hours of manual labor to salvage the company, after Microsoft said it couldn't be saved.
Hey - not here to worry you. Just saying that a second opinion is not a bad idea to make sure you are safe. Or, like Da Vinci mentions, she still makes another backup. A couple of those, in addition to auto helps. :)
Ease of use ranks pretty high for desired features, doesn't it? :)
Pam - that is great to hear! I’m hoping the same for the rest of you, too, that there are no issues in your future ;) After this series, at least you will be prepared, eh?
It looks like this has inspired us to do something, or do more, in the area of protecting our content and our sites. That is a good thing! Pat yourselves on the back ;)
There seems to be a theme here and I am right there, too. I would die if I lost my content! BTW - there are some other creative ways to help with your content that are outside the realm of backups, yet they serve as backups and more! We’ll have to add that to our list of future #SocialCafe topics... one of these years :D

Do you make regular backups of your site? Don’t feel you have to answer that, but do ask yourself the question. How important do you feel backups are?
We chatted about the importance of backups and some ideas on how we can get the job done, for our own protection.
