Hullo, friends across the computer world. Does anyone have any good advice on backing up a computer (or, rather, two computers, one a Mac, one a big PC)? I’ve been looking into a few programs — there’s something called Acronis True Image 8.0 that apparently copies all of the contents of a hard drive on to CDs or what have you, and it’s rated highly by CNET.com… but having the whole thing backed up on disc wouldn’t help in case of my worst fear, which is the destruction of my apartment (fire, flood, tornado, lightning bolt from God, etc.). Of course, there’s always the idea of burning everything and then keeping it somewhere else, but what I’m really wondering is whether any specific methods of backing-up are better than others. Thus, I ask you all.

Obviously, I should be studying for tomorrow’s final right now.
