How/where to save data

  daisy2bell 16:06 08 Jun 04

Since I have lost valuable data due to a corrupted CD-R and CD-RW what is the best way to save.
I have a CD-RW, floppy drive and a zip 100 drive and a 2nd computer.
Any help would be appreciated please.
I'm really fed up with lost data

A second hdd and regular backups to CD-R.

I am not sure of why the CD-R got corrupted - there can be problems, I know, but regular backups should save things.

My data is saved to a slave disk, backed up at midnight to the master disk and copied to CD at 1am. There is nothing crucial on it though - anything that is valuable is usually uploaded to my webspace.

Volumes could be written on backups but it essential to be self disciplined and methodical.Don't leave it until tommorrow; when you switch off tonight your HD might fail on next boot up.

Oh make sure your media is ok.

How badly is the CD Corrupted, as there are programs available that will recover data from damaged CD's.One such program is CD X Rescue which was available from PC Advisor issue 104 (Spring 2004)
