Call me Big Daddy when you back that ass up

I have a question for those of you more computer savvy than I (read: all y'all). After iTunes has repeatedly cautioned me to back up my music, I'm finally getting a little concerned. Confession time. I don't back up shit. Nothing. I understand that if my computer would crash, music I've downloaded might be unrecoverable. So, what is the best way to back up a considerable amount of music? Should I buy one of those external hard drives things or is that not even what those are for? Right now I'm just concerned with backing up the music. I stream my porn, so that's not an issue. I have about 12 GB of tuneage and counting. Three feet high and rising....anyone?
PS Could I restore music from my iPod onto a new machine?

Sorry, I can't help you. I just want to say THANKS! I totally have that song stuck in my head now.

We use an external hard drive for backups. Actually, after the crash I had in November, I have two internal hard drives and one external.

Externals are pretty cheap right now.

Ho, who is you playin' wif? Back that ass up. Juvenile, baybee! I'm singing it too, Sara. Unfortunately?

I guess I'll try that. I wasn't sure that is what those are for. PS -- I ordered the adapter to network my TiVo because I'm getting rid of my landline phone. Don't forget you offered your man to give me a hand, FG.

Can I still call you Big Daddy, even if I don't need to do a back-up?

Michael said...

Oh, you need to. And yes.

long url but good reviews and kinda on the inexpensivo side. 80 bucks for 80 gigs... Big Daddy.

You girls are a hoot!
