Cant be bothered to. Don't really have anything to important on my computer that has a risk being destroyed or lost. If it does I just go to my friends copy the program then erase what's left of the other one and replace it. Other than programs nothing else really. Maybe hotmail but I have multiple ways of getting at it. More of an inconvenience rather than a bother.

Though I do have two 1 Terra byte hard drives filled with video's, music, and pictures. one is completely full the other one is almost half. I guess the only thing that I would hate losing is my USB drive that has 100's of notes and idea's for short stories or novels.

I don't have any backups if my PC.

I only back up my Macs. The PCs are basically video game consoles here.

I don't have anything that important on my PC that I would need to backup. If there is something like photos (or other things that don't take much space) I don't want to lose I can use Flickr, dropbox, my phone or a memory stick to backup them.

OS, games and other programs I can just install again. And steam and MMOs use cloud type save so losing a save file doesn't matter.

Uhm.. Be extra careful with your external hard drive guys !

I had two hard drives which i accidentally dropped while the hard drive is plugged to my comp. Since then i lost all my files. You can definitely recover it by asking experts to help you but it will cost a bomb.

So my suggestion is to store it in the internet cloud. Its .. safe up there.

I've got my own mini server which is 2 TB big and it has my stuff backed up... Or so it would if I can ever actually finish the backup process. I got it working once, then had to do some 'fiddling' about with my PC and in return I now have to re-back everything up. The first time I attempted to re-back it up the internet disconnected and I had to restart it, the next time I tried a Windows update appeared overnight and I had to restart it, the next time I tried it stopped halfway for some reason... and I had to restart it. My internet is in a rather iffy place at the moment and is rather slow and disconnecting a lot (yes, bugger to you, Kingston Communications) so I'm afraid to start it up again. The last time my PC died the external hard-drive I backed my stuff up to refused to work so I had to re-download everything and lost some important stuff. I really want it doing as soon as possible.

I also have my PC in my room and as such lose a night's sleep everytime it attempts its 24 hour long backup process, so when it constantly fails I'm not very happy come the morning.

I suggest off site backup, local is good but all your data is in one spot and susceptible to the same things as your computer. Simply rotate two external backup drives every week with a friend who holds them for you.

I used to not back up my computer, it ended in tragedy. Now I make sure everything is backed up regularly.

I have a dropbox account. That's my only resource. If I loose everything I just ask a random person to give me their reaction folder because that's about all that's on this thing anyway.
