I diligently backup my data between homePc/officePc and an externalHDD. I use a product called AllwaySync to keep everything in sync.
If i move out of the country, i know longer will be using my officePc and my homePc is essentially inaccessible, which leaves me entirely dependent on my external HDD. Call me paranoid but experience has taught me that this isn't a good idea. Is there some free software out there that would let me take backups of my External HDD onto more reliable sources like say DVD(s). Assuming i drop my extHDD i have an image of it to restore from.
1) Not sure if the much recommended Acronis backs up ext-HDDs? 2)considering i'm going to be doing this once in 3 months or even 6 months, would prefer a free alternative.
P.S any other recommendations of good practices will be much appreciated. I've got ~120Gb of stuff, so online backup not entirely practical.
