As Steve says, get a good external harddrive thumbsup They are quite cheap now days and are very user friendly Egyptian

Not wanting to sound too geeky geek
I have
2 x 1tb external drives
1 x 500gb external drive
2 x 1.5tb internal drives
2 x 1tb internal drives

Everything is mirrored so that if the worst happened, i would not lose any of my data grin
