I just bought an auto backup system. Well worth the money....
It took about 20 minutes to do the inital backoff, and now the drive automatically updates any files that have changed/add daily. I always meant to get something like this, a few weeks ago I had thought I lost everything. I won't be taking that chance ever again!

I'm ready to buy a back up system. My hard drive is giving me lots of warning signals something is going bad and I just can't chance it any further. I've been through about 4 hard drive crashes in my live and they are not pretty. Thanks for the link and the comments about it.Ron Bechdolt | Affiliate Program Management Consultant

If it auto backs up, wouldn't it back up a virus, too?Comments are opinion unless otherwise noted. Remember, pillage first. Then burn. Half of all people in the world have IQs under 100. You best learn to trust ol' SSanf!

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>If it auto backs up, wouldn't it back up a virus, too? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>It could, but it keeps up to 5 revisions(set at 5 but can be made unlimited), and you can not directly execute code from the drive with the software being used. If one of the revisions becomes corrupt, go back one more.
Now if you choose to, you can actually just pull the plug on the internal drive and run off this one(if you did not use the backup software) just like an internal drive. Pretty nifty device, I have a complete backup up on a partition. I then selected all the folders that are used regularly, those are the ones that are updated daily.
There are two software programs that come with it.
1. Norton "Ghost", which backs off the entire drive.
2. A program from the manufacturer 'Iomega' which makes the peirodic backups.
There are all kinds of settings in the software, it does not have to be automatic. After the intial backoff, you can set it where you can back it off at your own leasure if you are afraid of backing off a viris. I compared what it would cost for an internal 80 Gig drive and the software seperatly, it would have been more than double. This is quite a value.
