Backing Up Is Hard To Do

It's Friday, normally we don't go in to work on Fridays, but given that I'm out for two weeks in May and Lisa won't be around as much, we're going in to work anyway. There's too much to do.

This morning during breakfast I'm doing my regular full backup on to CD. I should back up more often, but over the last year it seems like my original monthly full backup is actually three monthly.

Every couple of days I drag my c:\colin folder into a c:\backup directory on another computer, but that's not the same as burning it to CD and then pruning the accumulated drek.
