Backups -- snore

I think it's been like a year since the last time I created an archive of all my fansubs off of Deneb. So I unwrapped the last 3TB USB drive I was keeping around and plugged it in this morning.

I had nightmares all last night about system crashes. That's what brought this all to mind.

Turns out the easiest way to do this is to have the new drive plugged into Alcyone, and to do manual copying of the files I want to archive. But we're talking something like a terabyte and a half, so it ain't gonna be fast. Probably take the whole weekend to get it done, but then I'll feel much more secure.
