GM Cuz's near and far
I back up with two externals and cd's. I use two externals. One is a
500. this one I add all my trees on. I have a 2 gig external. The 2 g is the
one I use everyday. I back up on it all day lone I work from it. I update
and store newest information once a week and those get stored at my mothers
house on cd's. I have a research tree that is updated daily. So if I lose my
esternal all is not lost either way. I also have all my orginall documents
in binders the copies are on disc and external.
I think the mini usb drives might replace my cd's. That is a good idea. They
are so cheap now days. I picked one up for 7 dollars a few weeks ago. sp
Jpan I am stealing that back up ideal thank you..
