    I'd cry. A back up sounds like a good idea.

    Backups are a good idea though I can rarely be bothered with them.

    I answer to the question I would have a fit and probably break a *lot* of things in the immediate vicinity.

    I don't think I ever really backup...

    I have lost almost all my source once...I had to go to another computer where I still had an older version of it on it...that sucked. I was real ........ed off for a while, then I calmed down...

    Yeh, I believe in back-ups, but I don't really exercise that belief. I should though. In case of an emergency. It takes so long, though. I don't have that time to waste. Although, what am I doing now? I could be creating a back-up now. Oh well.

    It's a case of 'It's a good idea but I can't really be bothered to do it as what's the probability of my needing it? I'll probably lose the disks anyway'.

    Or something.

    Yeh, that would be a problem. But what are the chances of loosing the data on the hard drive AND loosing the backups. It narrows down the possibilities.

    I would not consider it a coincidence if I lost both the info off hard drive and backups. I would think someone was meddling.

    I'm a very suspicious person.

    Gosh, I hope I'm not in a ten-foot radius when no-one looses data files.
