Ok...does this sound goofy....I am going to backup my Lap Top with Carbonite and instead of having them back up my 2T EHD I got another 2T EHD drive so have the same files on each of those,,,, Cheaper in the long run as it is only $59 for a year of just my LT.????

I do that Carol. I back up in more than one place though. We have another hard drive that we don't update as often that I keep in the safe deposit box. And it has everything on it, not just my scrapbook stuff.

We've been doing it since about 1998 - long before online back-ups were the norm. ;)

Carbonite + two Duplicate EHD drives should be enough...if not I am thinking I was not suppose to have  the stuff LOL....as I have said, we scrappers lean toward the Paranoid....I know I do.

I use Carbonite to back up my desktop and my 3TB EHD.  My EHD is starting to make weird sounds, so I guess it's time to purchase a new one.  This time it will be 4TB.  Can't believe that I have that much 'stuff'.  I remember when I thought that my new 52MB IBM Computer was big enough.  :rofl:

I have a 2T and two 1T.....The guy out at Staples just looks at me and shakes his head...the second time I went out and got a  1T he said are you sure you need that?  I said well, I have a 1T full already and he could not believe it.....not a scrapper, obviously....LOL

Thanks ladies for inspiration. I have 3 EHD and do back up often but now after all this chatter I am inspired to do it again today before leaving to work on the boat. It can run the whole time.

Happy Scrapping

My 3TB EHD died.  So I was going to buy a 4TB, as I thought that was as big as they came.  Wrongo!  I am now the proud owner of a 5TB Seagate EHD.  The guy at Best Buy didn't believe that I needed that big of a drive.  He tried to talk me into getting either a 2TB or a 3TB.  He said, "Honey you don't need that much space."  So I answered him back, "Oh but HONEY, I do."  I'm surprised that he didn't pat me on the head.  ;)   Condescending little twirp.  So I know what you mean Ande/Carol.  :D
