Since I'm doing that, I thought I'd ask: Are you backing up your data?
Backups are the only way to protect yourself from a virus or hard drive failure or just accidentally erasing something. :/
I posted about this previously with geek-tastic detail. I've updated it slightly since then, so here's the short version.
- Mac OS X's Time Machine for automatic back ups of my main system. I can immediately recover everything that was on my MacBook Pro if the laptop dies or the hard drive fails. It also keeps files that I've deleted up to a certain point. So it saves me if I've accidentally deleted something.
- Drobo for protected, long term storage. That's where I store my photos. Since it's redundant, one of the 4 hard drives can fail and I'm still ok.
- Off Site hard drive that mirrors the Drobo. This is in case I somehow accidentally delete something on the Drobo or something catastrophic happens, such as my house burning down. I'll still have a copy of my important data somewhere other then my home. I bring this off site drive back once a month to sync everything up.
