Digital storage

Storing information off of my hard drive has been on my mind a lot lately, having recently upgraded to a new hard drive after my crash. I know that I want to organize all of my photos and get them on CD's. There is also the matter of documents, though. My son is a class at school that utilized thumb drives to take their information with them wherever they go. I think I would like something with a little more storage capacity, though. I've been reading about micro sd cards, and I'm thinking that might be just what I need. The only problem that I can see is that they are so small, I'd be afraid that I might lose mine. I'm always thinking that with the kids' Nintendo DS games. Those things are tiny, and I just know they're going to lose them - but, they don't. Hmm...interesting. How on earth does that work? That a kid can keep track of an itty bitty thing like that, and yet, they often can't find their shoes? Haha! Well, so maybe I wouldn't lose it. I do need to do something - I need to prepared for another crash. I don't ever want to go through that again! It was awful!

What about adding an external hard drive to your set up that way you can save what you need with more than enough room to spare

I live in fear of the next time this computer gets sick and needs a complete reformat. Losing all those pictures. But have I done anything about it yet? No. I have, however, knitted a pair of blue socks. It's a start.

I'm always concerned about losing my music, photos, etc. Have you see the drobo? (I think the website is drobo.com.) It's kinda $$$$, but will keep your stuff safe. I'm using an external hard drive myself, but if that crashes....yikes.

madamspud - My hubby keeps saying that we need to go with an external hard drive - I think that's the next gadget-y thing we'll get!

eve - Yep, me too!

fireflower - You crack me up!! I know, losing the pics is the worst part of a crash for me!

Arnold - No, I haven't heard of drobo - I'll definitely have to check that out. Although, the $$$ will probably keep me away...
