If you're already taking dailies to a flash drive and weaklies (sorry, weeklies
) to a safe depsit box, then you dont really need another backup medium. Thats plenty. Just do a weekly backup, instead of a quarterly backup to the dvds, and you will have an even cheaper system that allows you to go back in your records to any week in time!
Yes, I know $50/yr is not a lot for a small biz. But $50 on something that was completely unneeded seems bad to me.
Use that $50 to get some more blank dvds. They are a much more viable solution than the online backup solutions.
As a side note, remember that these online services have to back up over your internet connection. Assuming you have an average broadband connection (384kbps up), its going to take you several hours
to do the backup each time. And you dont have the ability to restore to a week ago with such services, only to the last backup.
If you want to spend money, get something like True Image Workstation
which will let you save the os, programs, and everything else along with your files, allowing you to resume working in minutes if you have a hardware failure, without losing any custom configuration. Its $80, but its ONE TIME.
Just my 2 cents. (No pun intended)
