As an independent technical communicator, I am working on several concurrent projects which of require backing up. Many of these publications are lengthy with numerous graphics. Hence they take up a lot of space.

I have a Syquist drive which is useful for transporting large books to and from the client.

I recently upgraded to Windows 95. Unfortunately, the backup software I had been doing is not supported. Consequently, for the short run I have zipping the publications and writing them to a spare Syquist drive.

However, this is somewhat cumbersome. I would like to set up backup system them works with Windows 95, handles large capacities for appending successive versions, and is easy for retrieval of stored files. What are my options? Regular tape system, compression (floppy) system?

Ideas appreciated for state-of-the-art backup systems.
