Lots of good info here!

For those of you who are:
1. Fanatical about back-ups
2. Overabundant in $$$$
3. In love w/ tinkering in your workstations

I present:

Get Veritas 9.1 back-up software
A Quantum SDLT 600 tape drive (sadly, they are SCSI, so you'll need a SCSI board in your desktop)
Finally, a bunch of Maxell Super DLT I 320 GB tapes (as in 22) and a few cleaning tapes

Back up 7 days (differential) (7 tapes)
Sundays do a complete back-up (there should be four/month)
Every month do a complete back-up (12 tapes)
At the end of the year, perform a yearly back-up (archived for 10 yrs)

My data schema looks like this: (I'll use Italy, as that is where I have the most shoots)

J:/Data/Archived Pictures/Places/Italy/Cagliari/RAW
J:/Data/Archived Pictures/Places/Italy/Cagliari II, III, IV, etc
J:/Data/Archived Pictures/Places/Italy/HDR

I find this lends itself very well to cataloging. The name of the city or country can be suffixed with a year or month/year desgination. If I need exact date, well, that's in the EXIF data.

Each picture is named as it is edited, so searching for something is relatively simple (I use Vista).

J:/ is my external Maxtor 1 TB drive. At the end of the year, I'll opt for a 8-12 TB NAS station from Seagate or Buffalo. (Seagate just bought Maxtor)

Data security is a big portion of my job -- there is nothing like hearing the grinding and gnashing of teeth when the customer finds his data is lost!
