That's great to have it posted in several places because people like me, all I really check up on is the forums and the membership area, I don't check much else, so in order not to miss good stuff, I just have to keep doing what I'm doing!

I wish I had enough stuff to need to backup on a big drive.  I actually use a failed hard drive (320GB, 2.5" SATA) from a laptop that wouldn't allow me to install an OS on it.  It writes/reads just fine and I put it in a cheap external enclosure, $8-something from Amazon.  I have maybe 40-50GB of stuff I must have saved and another 100GB I'd like to keep forever.  The must have stuff is also backed up to DVDs, I zipped everything into 4GB folders and burn them and then I do it again for double backups.

Another idea is get some of those 32GB flash drives when they're on sale for $15-$20.

But if you have terabytes of stuff to back up, old hard drives are great.  You can go cheap and use bare drives, and get a hard drive dock, or you can buy little enclosures for each of them.
