Generational Backup Scheme

A generational backup is one of the simplest, most effective methods for making and keeping backup copies of your data. Properly done, it combines ease of use and data protection.

The most common generational backup scheme is the three-generation or "Grandfather-Father-Son" method. In its most basic form it involves making a complete copy of the data to be backed up on removable media such as tape or CD.
