This is a good point. So what program(s) would you guys recommend for performing the backup? And where do you store the backup, another USB drive?
I'm considering adding a NAS drive to act like a server on my network but if that drive fails I don't want to loose everything. Right now I have one large USB drive with everything on it, not backed up which scares me.
