Why should something as routine as backup not be done automatically by computers? Why depend on people to do the backup?
I don't depend on people to do the backups, but people need to make the decisions about what to back up and when and where.
No computer can possibly figure out how much data loss you or your company can afford to deal with.
No computer can decided whether backups should be to a local drive or a network share, nor what to do with them once they are backed up.
And so on.
Yes, the computer can do the day-to-day or hour-to-hour work, but first you have to tell it what it's supposed to do. They have no initiative, no judgement.
