Last night I purchased another USB hard drive to backup my MacBook. That brings my USB drive count up to five. This is a one touch maxtor 160gb drive. Why so many? Because I have been burnt too many times by not having my computer backed up or I’ll experience a system or hard drive crash. Well not that many times but twice is one time too many. Plus it’s good to have a cloned mini one touch drive to have around for those unexpected system crashes.
The process will be a nightly backup using an application called super durper, use another drive as a time machine backup. The other drives are used for file storage.
I’m just glad hard drive prices are so cheap now, because it looks like I’ll be buying a 1TB drive soon to backup my backup drives.
