I Personally have an apple ipod 40gb and backup to that using a belkin camera adapter when im out on a shoot. Then when i get home stick it in the dock and copy'em to my hard drive. I leave 10gigs spare for pictures and it works with RAW files. It means i have music on the shoot as well.

But what do you use for backup? Hard drives will fail and certainly they fill up fast. I have 400-500 gig of photos already and it is growing by leaps and bounds. Ultimately, you'll have to use CD's or DVD's or something more than just hard drives, won't you?
Cheers,
Roger

I Buy 250gig sata hdds off ebay two at a time (I know this isnt the most cost effective way of doing it). I stick one in my server connected to multiple promise 4ch sata controllers and use the other hdd to backup the last one i filled then i stick that hdd in a safe at a different location. Ive built the server to take 24sata hdds and im up to five with four backups. The reason for the backups is because about a month after the server was up and runnig, some kind person doing something ive been told called WARDRIVING killed it and i lost everting on it. Now its a simple case of digging out the backups and attaching them to the server and copying across. Expencive but safe on average i buy 4 250gig hdds a year.

The operating system will not allow one to start a save until the data is under 700MB. BTW, I have seen many models of external drives for under $200, but what format does one use?
Thanks to all that gave me their opinions.

That's a reasonable solution. I do more or less the same thing. I find really cheap drives on sale (just bought a 200 gig Seagate for $74.00) and put them into externall USB/Firewire cases (about $25 each). So for under $100 I have 200 gig of storage. I have 5 of them so far (some are 250s). Its a very economical backup method.
