I second Joe Atzberger analysis. Your backup policy must be adjusted on
data update periodicity.
A good practice is to document backup AND restore. You must know and
test by advance what you will have to do in case a restore is required.
You may need a partial or a complete restore depending of situation:
complete disk failure or just DB data corruption.
Don't forget that with Koha 3 indexes are built outside MySQL DB: in
Zebra. You can't save Zebra indexes synchronically with MySQL DB.
Hopefully, Zebra indexes can be rebuilt easily and almost quickly. You
must know how to do it in a recover after crash scenario.
Other systems are also possible involving disk partitioning and mirroring.
