I ask this because I've got about 34 gigs of MP3s on one hard drive. I've also got an FTP up occasionally. In the past, I've had both of my hard drives die at one point or another, which has me anal about backing up every piece of data that comes into this thing. My IBM 37 gig was the first to go, I only had that for about a year. My Western Digital 43 gig lasted only a bit longer than that. And my Maxtor 5 gigger, which I got in 1998, is still ticking...hah.
