    Default It's just me, with a friendly reminder...

    to back up all your DSD goodies!!!
    Get out those EHDs (or use your online back up service). I've got a little over 13GB in my Downloads folder currently...so I'm going to unzip/organize as much as I can while watching DWTS, and then when Castle starts (*insert swoon here*), all that got unzipped will be backed up onto my 3 EHDs. And then I'll do the same thing tomorrow night and probably the night after that (but with different shows)! lol

    So please, make sure you back up all your goodies so you don't lose them!

    Yeah, if I don't unzip/back up right away, it takes me forever to get around to it. Hopefully you have a nice, calm day and can get some stuff done (or just relax. Whichever!)
    I ended up only unzipping like 1.5GB of stuff. I did some laundry and other chores and time got away from me. Bo-ring!

    YES!! I did this, am doing it now, too...lol... there were so many blog trains and sales, I went crazy!! I lost most of my kits last month and it was awful. Had to scramble around to the different shops and ask if I can re-download, thankfully they said yes!! WOOHOO!! But these hops, there's no going back!!

    I use this program to extract, super easy and quick!! http://www.extractnow.com/

    All my stuff sits on an EHD (computer runs better that way, plus it's easier to "hack" with the laptop that way ).

    I need to get a back-up HD at some point, so that I can back up the laptop for when we replace it this coming February.

    i have 2 ehds (500 mg and 1T), and keep all my stuffs on them, it does make the laptop run faster...i also have dedicated back up 1T ehd that runs once a week...

    can't be too safe, imho

    I don't use EHD's anymore I have had more of those crash and lost everything so I just hold my breath and keep it on my computer, I have had less trouble doing that than using an EHD.
