The data's priceless, so I back it up weekly
Authored by: pochrox on Sep 09, '04 11:57:00PM
Great poll! I back up weekly.. I store all of my data in one folder, then just copy that one folder to a 160GB external Firewire HDD every Sunday.

I used to use Disk Copy to create an image file of this folder (with "compressed" & "AES-128 encryption" set) and use that file as my backup, but it took a long time to produce and recently crashes with error 999 (maybe cause the folder is 12GB in size), so now I just copy it over.

As with most people here, the data in my computer (Powerbook G4 12") is worth more than the computer itself, so I at least duplicate the data. Which reminds me.. I have to back up my Email, iTunes, and iPhoto also! I guess I'll copy over my home folder.. I'll do that monthly tho; I'm too lazy. :O)
