Posted 05 December 2009 - 10:20 PM
My pictures and all my scrapbooking supplies weigh a ton, figuratively speaking, so if anyone has any recommendations,let me know!
Thanks a lot in advance. I sure need your help here!

As for a backup software for my EHD. I don't use one. I back up to my EHD manually. I don't keep mine plugged in, because I don't like the idea if something like a power surge comes through and takes out my computer, it may take the EHD with it. So once a month, I plug it in, back up my photos, documents, and digi scrap stash purchases and forget about it.
After each SG purchase, I also move the zipped files onto my EHD.
Every 6 months or so, I back up my entire unzipped digi stash on DVDs as well.

I've experimented with Mimeo, which seemed to take eons to backup my stuff and buries my files six folders deep..... as well as with Genie Timeline. The test will come when I need to UPDATE the files, which will be at least once a week because I get a lot of Scrapgirls stuff.

Thanks. I have seen/heard you mention Acronis before, but don't know much about it.
and to Sunnie...I'm trying to devise and easier way to backup and update than to burn a dvd and then transfer it to an EHD. Thanks for the input!
