After reading through this thread: (Dead Link Removed) It has sparked some questions in my mind. I just installed Cubase SX 2.0, and before doing so, I made sure I did a Ghost of my HD... Took 12 CDs, and several hours. I decided while I was at to back up the data drive since I am in the middle of an important project...22 more CDs. Talk about a pain in the ass!!! That makes 34 CDs to back up my system!!! Here are my questions (finally!!!): 1) Does Ghost do incremental backups? 2) As I start designing my new system, I am trying to decide the best way to go for backup. It seems to me that I remember Gary (Opus) talking about hot-swappable HDs. What is that all about? Can I still have a OS/Apps drive and a data drive in *addition* to a hot-swappable backup drive? 3) Are these swappable drives "standard" IDE HDs, or are the something special? 4) Can I Ghost to a swappable drive if I have 2 other physical HDs in the system? 5) Maybe a DVD-R would be a better solution, and offer more versatility? Opinions? Comments? Thanks!
