Backing Up Supplies

11 posts in this topic

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
