Drives? Or generations?
I usually use two drives for backups; one for imnages, stored in a gun
safe, and an external for backups of certain folders.
Of the images, I do incrementals for about six months, then start
over. This system keeps at least duplicates of importand files, and
triplicates of most.

The Dixie Chicks won the Grammy
for Best Country Album on Sunday
even though they are boycotted
by country radio stations. You
can tell the vote was held in
Hollywood. The other nominees
for best country were Cuba,
Switzerland and Vietnam.
