You can also set up a PC anyway to automatically back up one big drive on
another.  It means having two drives for each one you really use but saves =
lot of work in event of a crash. It does not protect against stupidity - if
you accidentally trash a file and save it will also be put on the second
disk but does help in a crash.

Really sorry about your problems Walt.  You have my deepest sympathy.  Even
when things are backed up it is a heqq of a pain in the neck to pull
everything back particularly when you are working with so many gigs of data=

I'll check it out. Since I'm mac, not every place can handle it. I'm not
worried about repair of the disk, only getting the data. No way I'd
trust a rebuilt disk.
