When is the file backed up by ipfs? When is Erasure coding used by ipfs?

Since ipfs will only store files on the current node, it will not actively push them to other nodes. So, how does ipfs back up files? Still no backup files? Or want to combine filecoin backup files? Hope the seniors will advise.

search this this forum for the word “backup”. The question has been asked an answered about 10 times before. :slight_smile:

They will not get “backed up”. Or if we regard backup loosely as having more than one copy, then you have already done it when you add the files to the local IPFS node during which the input files will get copied, chunked, and added to the repo.
