Hi All,

I am about to take an extended trip/vacation and have been looking into getting a digital wallet. Since they are basically hard disks (and thus, have moving parts), they may be subject to failures.

My question: has anyone experienced any failures in the field (other than "dropping" one)? If you did experience a failure, how easy/difficult was it to recover your data?

The digital wallet seems like an inexpensive way to store photos and I am trying to avoid buying more CF cards.

Thanks for your help.
