Busy these few days...

my boss home PC down...sent to me to check after his brother failed to diagnose anything....at my home..we found out his HDD is dead...and he was like " oh oh...wife going to kill him"....all his kids digital photos gone...2000+ pcs....the last backup he did was in Sept last yr....:(

i told him even if backup on CD/DVDs, it is not 100% gauranteed to be retrieveable...try reading some cd you backup a while ago..chances of it not being able to read is 70%........cause of SGP's humidity levels....DVD/CDs have to be kept in environment with a RH of about 35-45%....thats why I have 3 Electric Dry boxes....also ..brnd of media is impt...dun go for cheapo DrCopy or Meoldy CD/DVDs you see at Sim Lim Square..its cheap...but can the data last??

These is what i do for my kids photo
*Monthly Backup of his pic on DVD
*Another copy of backup on a 40GB 2.5" hdd..removable one..
*Another copy on my NAS

I very Kiasu and KiaSi...else photos lost due to hdd corruption..i kena upside down from mrs...hehehe...

anyway...bought 2 x 80GB hdds for him as he wasnt to backup his kids photo on the other second drive too....now he is learning....anyway $ per GB for 80 GB is not worth it..but think about it a 40GB HDD cost $83..a 80GB HDD cost $93
Which will you get??...and a 300GB HDD cost $208...but i doubt he will get such a big sized HDD...

ANyway CNY is here...tonight is the night where families get together for a Reunion Dinner to foster closer family ties..etc....and i have to give out AngPow...:(
At least this yr has bonus....so not so "siong"
