Nobody’s mentioned backing up files lately. How many people routinely backup video to an external drive?
I’ve been meaning to get a caddied Maxtor HDD just for this purpose. At one time, I’d always backup everything to another PC, but with house upheaval, it became inconvenient.
My supplier says these external drives usually have USB connections, not firewire. Will this matter? Bearing in mind that “capture” is the same as “transfer” could copying to another drive have any undesirable effect?
Can anyone enlighten me? Anyone with bad experiences?
