as i get more and more design work i am getting more and more worried about loosing data. i am really in need of a expert opinion on backup strategies as what i am doing now just does not feel as secure as it should be. as far as my particular situation goes (but hopefully this will be helpful to a lot of people): -hardware: new C2D MBP with FW800 + FW400, one LaCie 120GB and one LaCie 250GB externals -data: lots of large folders with tons of smaller (500MB maximum usually) files, mostly InDesign documents, but a good chunk of motion docs (AfterEffects + FCP) files as well as some source DV footage (which can get big). my "current" files (as in what i am literally working on more or less daily) are around 40GB of stuff (this varies), but i have probably 300GB of data that i would like to be "accessible" via hard drive as opposed to slower reading DVD. in total i have close to 3/4 of a TB of data that is mostly on DVD's (a couple of hundred DVD's) and a couple of LaCie external drives. -current backup: i use a registered copy of SuperDuper! to do a daily clone of my machine to one of the LaCie drives. another lacie drive has about 200GB of the "accessible" files i need, everything else gets put onto DVD whenever the project is over. one set of DVD's stays in my studio, and another set of DVD's goes offsite. -the problem: writing to DVD's takes forever so i do not do it nearly as often as i should. i feel like i should have some redundancy to my data other than DVD's. often one folder (one project) takes up more than 1 DVD so i worry about getting half my stuff lost in the shuffle. i am also concerned about the stability of DVD media over the years. also worried about the reliability of the LaCie drives (no problems yet) so i would probably go with something from OWC. obviously i will invest some money in a system that works, but before i go buy a couple of more externals i wanted to get some advice on a smart way to backup my stuff. thanks!
