A big thanks to Phil who pointed me in the direction of Foldershare, a back up system that kicks butt and is way better than any DVD or external hard drive.
The basic idea is that you synch your computer with another computer and you are able to replicate files on your own hard drive on the remote computer. While you are online the computer’s check each other out and make sure they match up.
So my back up is now on Danelle’s computer, hopefully a fairly safe option. It means that any work I do on her computer will ultimately end up on mine as well.
A fantastic system – and best of all – its free…
