That's good to hear, ZippoLag.

It's ironic, isn't it? All of us, despite knowing the importance of backups, don't always do so, until it is driven home by near disasters such as you've had.

Human Nature I guess, to ignore what matters until it's almost too late to do anything about it...

I always recomend everyone to make backups.
Personally, I blame procrastination, since I've had a bulk of 100 DVDs sitting on my desk FOR ALMOST A YEAR NOW and I just "don't find the time" to use them up on making a proper backup. It makes me quite a tad angry towards myself, but I guess I'll just have to MAKE the time for doing it '^^
