Take two of these;

QUOTED IMAGE

... and call me in the morning.

I noticed these are popular here, and they are on slickdeals today. $140 shipped from frys. Pretty solid deal for a 1TB external.

What software allows you to burn across multiple DVDs?

Files are getting larger with advances in digital cameras. I just got back from a trip & have 17GB of movie files shot w/Canon G9 as well as 11GB of image files that I need to burn to DVD. I have them backed up on my DROBO as well as another external hard drive but still want to backup to DVD & store offsite.

I have NERO 7 but when I try to burn the whole 11GB image file, it says there's too much data to copy onto the disk. I was hoping NERO 7 could handle the task.

Thanks.

I know Nero has a backup utility that you can select your files and it will tell you how many disks you will need. But you can just go onto the disk and grab a file, you have to use Nero to restore the files.

Print those worthy hanging and make sure you have multiple soft copies of those as well. As for the rest of the shots, I am not sure how often I will go back to look at them or if I ever look at them again. But this is just my opinion and shooting is only my hobby.

Backing up to DVD is fairly stupid these days. A lot of external hard drives also makes for human created errors (like I did recently). My suggestion is an internal 1.5TB disk, with a matching external 1.5TB disk kept offsite. Once you fill up 1.5TB technology will have moved on and given us 5TB disks.

Also, delete the crap. I take about 20GB of photos at weddings with my new cameras, I back that up, then cull, and end up with maybe 5GB of data - which is all I end up keeping on my backups (plus some psd files, album designs, graphics, etc).

But Tim, what do you do one day, when your new PC uses a totally different harddrive controller type than is plug compatible with the current internal 1TB drive? At least USB is somewhat insulated from the harddrive controller interface ever-changing continuum!

Use the network to transfer the files from the old PC to the new one. You'll probably have a factor of 10 or 100 times more space on the new drive.

You would come up with a perfectly valid response! :oops:

I didn't back up my photos =( and I my hard drive crapped out on me about 4 months ago.

Lesson learned. Lucky My best shots were luckily stored on a few of my CF cards. Its just a hobby, and I take mainly landscape photos, so I didn't lose much..thank god.

Now I'm temporarily using a external harddrive and a 16gb jump drive to back up my stuff.

You migrate to new drives over time, and drive standards change slowly. My current motherboard supports parallel ata and sata, i've migrated all my data drives to sata and most of the pata drives are in a drawer. Plus like Jon said just stick them in the old machine, or a usb enclosure.

Tim, take the word of someone who has been in PCs for about 25 years (even assembling them for myself and friends for about 15 year)...none of the PCs I have encountered had more that a single harddrive controller interface built in at one time: ST-506, SCSI, ESDI, ATA, IATA, IDE, EIDE, SATA, PATA. The fact that your current one does have PATA and SATA is a new one on me...the company I work for has a problem with PCs from 3 years ago having PATA only, and newer ones having SATA only.

Wilt, in this case I think you're crying wolf. I have hard disks ten years old with PATA that I can read with my brand new machine, if not I can get a PATA controller card, and many machines still support it. I would be migrating data off them now, but I bet in 10 years you will still be able to get data off, probably 20 years too. SATA is current and will probably be around 10-20 years from now, unless there's a huge revolution in storage (which wouldn't be unusual).
