I thought the point of git was that it was decentralised. So even if the server died, he wouldn't lose anything would he?

You can also stick a git repo on top of Dropbox... There are several articles about how to do this if you do a quick google.

Git makes it trivial to replicate your repos to more than one directory, no matter where those directories are located.

Whether or not this makes you "decentralized" depends on where your directories live. Two machines in the same location? Not decentralized.

Obviously. You can also backup your files to a folder on the same disk, but you wont will you.
