Old timer looking for new backup solutions

Postby Roadrunnersparade » Thu Jan 29, 2009 5:57 am

I have been using tape backup for years. Recently, I needed to recover a tape that was four years old. I have always used tape backups, but many people have advised that it’s just not the right system anymore.

Does anyone have suggestions on how I can bring myself up to speed? My buddy suggested trying a web service so I could [spamming link to competitor deleted] my data? But other sites have recommended I use [spamming link to competitor deleted] or [spamming link to competitor deleted]. What do you all think about any of these choices?

I had a computer guru inform me the other day that the most reliable backups are done with flash drives... they don't fade or become unreadable.
I picked up a 4GB flash drive the other day for $9.99 at Target.

Another hard drive or CD drive can eventually lose data.

I don't know how accurate this info is, but the techie that told me that is very good.

Syncback Pro will back up to flash drives
