I just realized that my iBook's HD is full. Mostly we're talking about pictures, but also large photoshop files. As usual I haven't done backup of anything... The thought of buying a stack of CD-R's and spend the weekend backing up my data is not my idea of a good time, so I'm looking for an alternative solution. The way I see it I have two options: Buy one of those external harddrives from LaCie, Maxtor, etc Buy an external DVD-R Option #1 looks more appealing to me: one drive with all my data and no more looking for the right disk. The only thing I'm afraid of is that I would put all my eggs in one basket. If the external drive decides to stop working I would lose all the data. If I got a DVD-R I could do dual backups for the most important stuff. Any input from the crowd out there?
