I'd back up my music/music video collection, which is at 12 gigs now and generally gains about 1.5 gigs a week (assuming I continue the same downloading pattern in the future).
Right now she backs up everything on her USB jumpdrive I gave her... However she's got about 10 gig of pictures and her own music.
I figured a nice 80 gig would suit... because she downloads like 5 songs a week, so her "portion" of it wouldn't gain as much as mine......
I have a 20 gig IBM drive that I have laying around, it's old, but I may use it for the time being just for reassurance until I can get my car fixed and see where I am financially as far as able to buy new hard drives...... I'd love an external one though, it'd be so much easier for both of us.
