I haven't succeeded in getting a single one of the automated
back-up tools available to function for me, but,
after loosing an HDD last year, and 3 months of important
financial data for my business, which I had neglected to back up, 
(smart, huh...)
I have begun making a habit of manually backing up my most important
files, at least, weekly, and have made back ups of all my groOvy tunes,
and photos, and stuff.
