I'm in the backup stage right now. I'm a backup freak. I have my regular nightly Retrospect backup of my user directory and a few other folders, I'll do a CarbonCopyCloner diskimage of the whole computer next, and I've done plain file-copying of my user dir. Sadly, my new firewire drive will not be here for a few weeks, so I've had to juggle things around between other drives that are almost full and a computer with nice empty drives that I have to access over the network because it doesn't support target firewire mode. Gah. I also backed up all my iTunes music yesterday -- 6 DVDs!
My normal backup routine is a nightly backup (using Retrospect) to a firewire drive. I have two, so I alternate nights. I make a full disk image before doing any maintenance work as well. But I don't have an offsite backup and that makes me nervous.
I can't think of how to easily implement that. When I was working at the agency, I had two drives and I would take them home with me. But there's no other place for me to take my drives now.
The only thing that seems plausible is to get a couple of small (in size, not disk space) drives and rent a safe deposit box. The bank is just across the street. But do you have to get a bank person to take you in every time you want to use the box? That could be a pain if I do it every week.
Do you have any suggestions for me? And what's your backup procedure?
