    Thanks

     

    No worries here, I have no less than a dozen backup drives in FireWire and USB flavors, including a Universal Drive adapter that I use to cycle bare drives in and out of the fire safe. I'm so anal, I even run the same User Libraries in three different OS X's and each of those is backed up at least once. For the most part I use CarbonCopyCloner and no longer use Time Machine after it croaked one of my Seagate drives. I don't do web based backups, because I'm to cheap to pay the extra monthly cost to upgrade from DSL to Broadband.

    Ditto. Only use three ext FWHDs, cloning with CCC eleven volumes for all three OSs and other things.
