Sorry, I didnt expalin well, I am doing a back up right now. My current "install" is 9 months old.
I've heard some people do reformats and reinstalls on a regular basis, with a drive image.
Blanks dvds in canada are about 0.91 cents each (good ones). If i do a backup say, once a month, thats $76 a year. I think ill buy a hard drive.
