well, We use Azure Dev Ops for our code repository. We work from laptops and/or desktops. Most of us have local backups (unofficially).
Azure Dev Ops is configured to for backups and has been tested. We were encouraged to use Azure Dev Ops for backups and not keep local copies until Azure Dev Ops wasn't available one day.
At that point, the lead person for each project kept a local backup of the projects they or their team worked on.

document code? If it's not intuitive, you're in the wrong field Big Grin | :-D
