    Yes but it depends on a lot of things. I know Blue ray is the best, unless there is something new I haven't heard of yet. I know that DVD's last the least. A second opinion is always best

    Yup- what Ricki said.

    Any data you have can be data gone. Hence save it to more than one place.

    Oh, yes on printing more...me too.
    Please look at my tut link - I think it will help designers not keep the abundance of 'stuff' y'all keep...esp word doc 2.
    . happy to clarify / expand more if needed. ;)

    There is also- disk clean up, delete temp files and a few others that get the 'dust' out.

    When I read DELETE in the first post, my heart skipped a beat--no I don't do that!! I do have several externals though--remember--if it's only on ONE hard drive, you are NOT backing it up. You have to have things in TWO places. Hard drives, and externals crash ALL THE TIME!! I bought an external for my daughter for Christmas and put all the layouts I made for her family on it--so if something happens to the stuff here, she'll have a copy of them!! I plan to do that for the other kids for this year.
    I have a few ct's so I get a lot of kits--and yes, I do go back and use some of the again if I remember!! I can't think of that "d" word at all!! It gives me the shakes!!

    I CANNOT stress that strongly enough. When 2 of my internal drives went amuck last August... DH says... no worries, in addition to the multiple EHD's we have CARBONITE-

    What a JOKE! Enrolled in 'it' in June 2013. By August they had less than 10% covered...their excuse...I had too much stuff and too many files!!

    Followed ALL their suggestions for faster UL and NO!

    After many hours on the telephone, I gave up.

    I will do it my way....
    if you want cloud...have an alternative...just sayin.
    Oh no, Michi! You just burst my bubble I've been backing up to Backblaze (waiting for my 1.5 million files to be fully backed up-only 150,000 to go!)...thinking that if my 2 EHDs bit the dust, I would have a cloud backup. Now what?!

    Sorry Tammy... I do not trust big brother...If if can go away ..it will. Plus I had a horrid experience with Carbonite! Grrr... Even with phone time for a long time.

    their final answer was ... We cannot back up stuff like you create.

    Now- How is THAT for professional speech???
    basically they want a few word docs...and not much more. The whole idea of a psd, a tiff, a raw file ...does them in.

    Thanks, Michi!
    I guess I'm going to have to invest in another EHD. I don't keep any of my scrapbook supplies or photos on my laptop hard drive. I have a 1TB "working EHD" that holds my photos and most current kits and travels with me as well as a 3TB "backup EHD" that holds a backup of my photos, pages, kits-both current and older. These are both almost full.
