Get either:
  • An external USB 2.0 hard drive.
    --- or ---
  • An internal hard drive and a USB 2.0 drive enclosure to put it in.
Personally I use Retrospect to backup my data. It is an incremental backup that allows you to restore any file to any point in time that a dump was taken.

ps: As a matter of courtesy, please do not use Caps Lock when posting. It is hard to read and it is consider as shouting.

Depending on the size of the files you could just store them on CDs (700MB), or DVDs (4.5GB), or Blu-Ray DVDs (25GB). Stored someplace where they won't get scratched or melted they will last longer than you.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
