Thanks,

Sheesh!!! Why don't you guys learn how to back up you valuable files! I've not lost a one in almost 50 years of computing.

Yeah, I bet you were nervous about getting a virus in your abacus. :-)

He had an abacus???? When I was a lad we had to count using our fingers and toes. That is when our toes weren't occupied with walking to school, miles through the snow, up hill both ways!
Our bare feet wrapped in barbed wire for traction on the ice of course.

Hah. You had it lucky. We couldn't get barbed wire, we had to use shards of glass. But we didn't complain, no...

Are we to presume that you still have all of your files on tape - paper tape, that is - or do you still have them on punched cards?
Either way, do you have a reader for that media?
If you can't read those "almost 50 years" worth of backup copies then they're useless.
PS: If you *do* have a paper tape reader, I've got a few rolls you could transfer to DVD for me...

Put the darn thing on a CD.

Or a DVD (4.7G , super-cheap**) . Or a double-layer DVD (8.5G, still a little pricey). Can't wait for recordable HD-DVD and/or Blu-Ray disks.
** huge spindles of blanks in supermarkets, computer stores, office supply places etc. etc. It is very gratifying that people are finally taking their data backup seriously.

You still can't beat an extra hard disk. They go on sale with manufacture's rebate at unbelievable prices at Best Buy. I got 80 Gig ones for $20 a month back. When you install them, it asks you to backup up your complete machine. When the old HD breaks, just unplug it. I lernt the hard way - restoring a crashed computer HD from CDs will take you all day - restoring from another HD takes 5 minutes

Best way is 2 IDENTICAL drives - mirrored by the operating system. Break the mirror set and pull the second drive - store offsite. Then back up data only on CD or DVD. Whenever a new program is installed, or major updates are done, re-do the mirror.
With DVD you CAN do a complete "bootable" copy of the hard drive to DVD id the partition is small (set up the HD with a "system" partition and a "data" partition. The "system" partition does not change often - so you back up the DATA on a regular basis - does not have to be bootable.

I remember one day the path was so slippery that every step forward resulted in sliding back three. the only way to get there was to turn around and walk the other way. A couple weeks ago, at a boot sale in the other London, I upgraded my backup system from an abacus to a nice little No. 28 Concise slide rule (circular) for 50p. Gerry :-)} London, Canada
