Thanks for the information. I have wondered how seasoned travellers manage their important 'stuff'.
You're welcome. I suppose we 'seasoned travelers' may seem a bit more cavalier than those who are more steadfast at home... but the general ideas have been the same for all of us. We do guard our info pretty strongly though, when we are in a foreign country.

Sure, we could get bonked on the head and things get stolen, or someone working in a hotel could pilfer the safes... back ups and copies help to justify our story, should we need to explain.

I completely understand. We, unfortunately, are pretty 'data dependent.' These days there are high gigabyte hard drives available to back up one's information and that needs to be done regularly...

We once lost 'everything' due to a lightening strike, and ... uh... it wasn't pretty.* ** *:P* Let's just say, it only had to happen once!*

Re: Any Californians comment on Well's Fargo

I have a nice little USB 40GB hard drive that I back up pertinent data to. I used it yesterday to reload my MS Money backup after a file in MS Money got corrupted somehow.

It's worth the $100 I paid, just to restore that data yesterday.

Akaisha,
I've been slack for a few months and this has reminded me to do a backup. *My laptop is acting up, so today I do the backup. I'm still putting the data on CDs but a good external HD would be great.

MasterBlaster mentioned an old bank here in SF and I went in to look around. *The interior is maybe one of the most spectacular I've seen. *Very nice.

I do a weekly backup religiously. Because each BU is less than 50 meg, so I keep 4 months saved.

Re: Any Californians comment on Well's Fargo

Yes, we back up often* as well. There are those files we back up each time we use them, and others that we back up weekly.

Like I mentioned... it only has to happen once* * the impression left indelible* marks!*

Take care,
Akaisha
