Yes, a copy of Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper backup software in addition to the built in Time Machine backup software. There is no other software more important than a good backup application. ;)

+1!!! I can't believe I missed that but maybe because my CCC backup has just been so automatic all these years that I hardly notice. ;)
