Awesome Question

Hey dudes, I'm using the Awesome Stew as a sounding board for all of you.  I currently have a 500GB Lacie drive that I worry about more and more. I want to back it up, but I have no idea what the best way to do that is. Would love some suggestions.


  1. haha is that really the only solution? It just feels so unsafe.

  2. Well. What I did when I was in your shoes is I bought a Netgear Stora. Nerd Alert; It's a Network Attached Storage device (NAS). It'll run you about $200 (which is about the cost of a decent size hard drive anyway) but it has a second slot where you can cram another hard drive. You can configure it to mirror the data on the first drive like I did and essentially have all your stuff in two places at once.

    It's been pretty good to me. I don't take advantage of all the crazy features, just the backing up part.

    Take a look at the 00:36 mark...
