I still have my Kodak DX6490 as a camera back up but my photos go to CD as soon as possible. Then I store some here at my house and also in a safety deposit box at the Bank. I plan on getting a Fire safe soon for storage at home. Very sorry to hear your system went down. Last time that happened to me I had a one week intensive go at getting everything back the way I like it in my new computer. You learn from your mistakes and hopfully never repeat them. Good luck on the recovery! Safety deposit box is not real cheap and I will soon let my Daughters keep copies of my photos as I plan on getting them a fire safe for next Christmas. Then I will have four copies of all my photos! Over 24,000 Taken with the K10D and counting since this time last year.
