Some people (like me!) use a back-up external h.d. because they travel
a lot. I have two different PCs at work and one of course at home.
Because of IT-imposed restrictions at work, it is not practical nor
wise to rely on Web-based back-up services. External, truly portable
h.d.s are the best way to go for people like us (or a flash drive if
you don't have to back-up that much).
