Backups...

Well, it wasn't Mozy scrambling the drive that caused it to fail, it was just Mozy trying to read all over the place, and the drive failing on its own.

Since I got things back up and running (a little over a week ago), I've been able to back up the shared documents on the C drive, and a big chunk of the personal documents on the (recovered) E drive. If everything worked, when I get home the backup will be done.

Mind you, that's just a partial backup.

I've still got to re-add the shared pictures directory to the backup set. That's at least 50GB of photos to back up, and will take a few weeks to push up to the server.

I've still got to re-add the iTunes Music directory to the backup set. That's around 120gb of music to back up, and will take a few weeks to push up to the server.

I'm watching prices on the diskless Netgear ReadyNAS NV+. After reading a ton of reviews, the ReadyNAS is the only NAS appliance I've found that doesn't have a bucket of complaints in review comments.
