Cool. Welcome to 2004.

Just kidding. We're all behind the technology curve somewhere. Just too much to keep up with in this dizzying modern age. I've got a long newbie agenda list as far as that sort of thing goes.

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

btw, nycguy... you DO have a good backup plan in place for your data, correct?

NOTHING sucks worse than having to re-rip a gajillion cd's...

^^^

bad with a capital B A D...

$100 spent on a hard drive for backup vs. who knows how many hundreds of hours to re-rip everything? i know which option i'm choosing...

imo, you can't be too careful... a regular backup of the backup is never a bad idea either... i'm an apple weenie, so i use a time capsule for "normal" backups, and then i backup the time capsule weekly to a separate external drive...

can you tell i've learned this lesson the hard way?

I'm backing everything up on a 2TB WD Essentials external HD that I picked up last Black Friday. My only regret was not investing in a NAS unit because with one of those babies I don't need to have my computer always on to play music with the Sonos system.

Something else to consider-keeping a backup in a separate location (at work, with a friend, etc.). God forbid your house gets robbed or burns down you'll always have another backup. I spent a TON of time ripping 2000 CDs then got a rare good idea to keep a backup in a completely different location.

There is always online storage as a choice.

I guess that the bottom line is how many backups does a person have to have before they feel secure. If you use an external HD in a RAID setup it really should be enough unless you encounter a disaster like a fire or an earthquake.

Or thief in the night. or day, more likely.

I would say one backup on site, one off, is reasonably reasonable.
