That's a wonderfully colourful term and I'll adopt it for my already-committed New Year's Resolution - namely to review and to 'can' even more of the too-numerous marginal shots that I've been hoarding so far.

With my previous D200 and now with my D700, I've always taken a NEF + JPEG-buddy pair with every shot, but I'm considering a carefully controlled deletion of most of those buddy JPEGs, and relying for future previewing and image sorting on the NEF-embedded 'Basic' quality JPEGs. All those buddy JPEGS are really, really (I'm telling myself ...) really redundant!

My 'secondary' image+data backup scheme uses external / eSATA hard drives, and they're now taking far too long to complete, at around 2 hours in total, and that's before I run the equally-essential verify phases on the backups.

(My 'primary' backups are done by my blissfully straightforward (home-built) Windows Home Server (WHS), which takes efficient and no-nonsense data-de-duplicated backups of both of my computers (in their entirety) in the same time it takes to pour just one PC-backup across that eSATA interface.)

I've read all of the above with great interest, thankyou, while I try to re-invent my 'secondary' backup regime ... hoping to find some backup option that comes close to the speed of my WHS box but which is still portable, and which I can implement twice, so that the secondary backups can be rotated off-site, at least once per week ...
