Would this be a good way to back up my data?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was going to write all of my music and .php scripts and programming source codes and everything on dvd-r disks, just incase my HDD were to fail on me I would just be able to buy a new one. I just don't want to lose what I have been saving for years now, I figure if I back up my stuff on a few 4.7GB DVD-R, I could put them in a case and put them up incase I were to ever needed to use them to retrieve my data. I was thinking of a portable HDD but that could go fail as well, I would get a USB drive but it would cost some money if I were to get a decent size in GBs, Well what do you guys think?

Im just thinking dvd-r disks would be the cheapest way to back up data and they cannot fail on you unless scratched but that would not be an issue.

That will work. I back up all my photos that way but I also put them on a backup drive as well.

I use multiple cheap 2TB drives from different vendors for backups that I rotate out so that I have the last two backups available. DVD-Rs work just as good, I just don't like using them as the time it takes to backup/restore a stack of DVD-Rs can be daunting and not to mention time consuming.
