My overindulgent extravagent backup solution
I do my editing on a 10k rpm SCSI drive - when I'm done I insert a normal IDE harddrive into my system (internal drive - not removable or external) then backup my project (original capture, project, and work files) to this drive - then remove it, label it, and put it on the shelf, and format the SCSI drive for the next project.
Permanent easy-access backup - and fully rewritable to get any changes.
once USB memory drives get to be of sufficient size I'm sure I'll switch to those.
don't make the mistake of buying the cheapest harddrives on the market for your backups - you will learn to regret that, and a 'last year/months model seagate IDE drive" really isn't that expensive.
