Here's for backup drives!

I dropped my laptop from about 4 feet onto a hardwood floor. It still worked, but I had a few things I wanted to backup anyway. A day later, the HDD died. Initially horrified at the blinking cursor on my screen, I glanced at my external backup drive and smiled.

Are you in good hands?

Re: Here's for backup drives!

Good onya, myte! I've gone to backup since I got a Mac with Leopard and therefore the "Time Machine" application. That got me going on automatic/no-think backups, thank goodness. Now the thing to do, I think, is to get another external hard drive so I can back up and store one unit off premises or at least in another area of the house, in case of fire, water damage, etc.
