[QUOTE=svejkovat;2652879]I’ve got another thread here discussing harddrive backup/cloning/mirroring. I hope I can get some concrete clarity here on a few things that I’m finding conflicting info on across the web.
First of all is there anything inherently bad about saving a 9gb backup file to a 16gb usb flash drive? I keep getting “it’s a bad idea” without any real substantiation. Modern USB “sticks” are a generally reliable storage media for static file over the ‘short’ term (talking less than a year for my needs in this case).
Are there any unequivocal facts that apply here?[/QUOTE]
I do use Flash Drives to Double Back-up important Data. I’m from the Old School, and believe in only Backing up your Data. If your C: fails, you buy a new one reload your OS, Programs, and Data and you are back in Business. I have worked on many failed Systems, and this method works every time. No Smoke and Mirrors, just basic stuff.
