    Suggestions for backing up your computer? I currently use an external hard drive that supports 4TB worth of storage. It works fine, but it's extremely bulky. Also, it's the only backup I currently have. I have roughly three TB worth of media that if I were to lose, I'm not sure what I would do.

    I've been doing some research on some possible alternatives, but having trouble finding one that can hold as much media as I have.

    All I have is a laptop with only 120GB of internal memory - so I keep EVERYTHING on my externalHD. I've been considering just getting another exernal HD to back up my current one. I know how to use it and am usually intimidated at the thought of having to learn a new program/application.

    This is what I've been looking at purchasing:

    You can add a protection plan of sorts so if it were to stop working, I could send it off and Seagate could rescue and recover everything that was damaged/lost. Then, they would send you a new external hard drive with everything you lost already on there, and if they were unable to recover your files, you get your money back.

    thoughts/questions/comments would be appreciated, guys!
