    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.
