I would still burn DVD/CDs or DVD/CD-RW.
External HD is exactly the same HD as the one you have inside your PC. It might fail, the question is when(c)?

That may be true, but burning to me is a pain in the butt and I don't think this will fail right away, if it does I do have the existing data on the cd's now. I figure if the drive seems to get sluggish or something wrong, get another and then transfer to new. Heck they are cheap enough.

Actually in all my years of computers I have not had a hard drive fail me yet...... I may have a windows crash but the hard drives have always worked. Cd's do not as in my case I have a few that are useless with my info.

I've set up a "Briefcase" with my files (it'll synchronize them for me) both on the HD and my 4gb flash drive. I just do an "update all" operation periodically, and anytime I've done something significant to either set, and I'm good to go. I figure the likelihood of both sets going out is small enough to live with, and anything external that took them both out, would most likely get any CD/DVD backups as well.

If you're using XP, you might try SyncToy (free from Microsoft):
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...o/synctoy.mspx

I've been using it to back up my documents and data files and it seems to work pretty well.

Cheers,
Bob

How does backing up have to do with M-Edge covers?

Heh. It doesn't really, JSWolf, it's accidental bleed-over from another discussion.

I just ordered the brown one. I was doughting to buy it until I saw a damage on the right side of the reader. There is a little damage on the chrome strip. To prevent more damages I decided to buy one.

And I'm so careful with it, so I have no idea how it got there. It's probably someone else his fault.

Karen,

How long did it take to get to you? Do they send an email with tracking information or is it send via USPS? I see where they have charged my card, but that's all. I guess I am just anxious.

Ellen

It came through the post office priority mail, they shipped it I believe one or two days after they said they would, but it got it very fast..... I have no complaints at all. It has postal tracking but I find that usually useless until the item has arrived. Yes they did email me and told me it shippped on the 28th..... they also supplied a post office tracking number (just went and looked)
