Al, are any of those backups kept off-site? That's the only thing missing in your setup. Imagine a fire gutting your office...

Everyone should get at least one USB external drive. They're dirt cheap and
can save your butt. I now have three, each 1TB in size allowing me to have
multiple backups of critical material. My 100 GB HD in my (my four year-old
Gateway) laptop is backed up at the end of every day to a temporary external
storage drive. The information on the temp drive is stored to the
appropriate locations in the other external drives.....AND....everything new
is copied to a DVD at the end of every month. It might sound like overkill,
but I am responsible for many documents for a number of companies. I need to
keep things organized and safe. I also have a huge (and growing) fine art
photography inventory that went digital several years ago.
