I have a 2 TB external hard drive that runs an automatic backup while im working. I got mad about something earlier in the year (actually it was when my husband brought divorce papers home; but all is fine now) and slammed my laptop top so hard (and had no backup) that I cracked the hard drive and lost over 100 pages that were finished. So, I completely stand on my little soap box and preach back up please. Don't lose your work. It's not worth it.

What kind of external drive do you have?

We currently have a 1 TB external hard drive that my husband has hooked to our home network for extra storage and back-up (it is set for nightly back-ups) but because I just don't feel completely confident with one backup I put an additional 1 TB drive on my Christmas list that we will use to do periodic back-ups (I am thinking weekly) and will live in our fire proof safe as an added means of protection.

Better safe than sorry, right?

This sounds like a good plan, Kathryn. What brand external hard drive will back up your network automatically? I'd like to look into it.

Thanks

after the new year im going to look in to online storage as i worry about the EHD breaking.
