I use Acronis True Image to backup my boot drive with all my important stuff on... And I use a LTO3 Tape Drive to backup my 10tb media drive as I just cant bare to buy a 10tb drive for backing up because that's just a waste of a good drive.. But backing up onto tape is much more reliable than hdds as you have very little to go wrong with tape.

Tell that to any VHS player that ever lived :cry:
LTO drives/cassettes are in a different league to VHS as they can store upto about 10tb on 1 cassette and the write speed is 1.000mb/s, but the latest drives cost about 10grand .... I bought mine 2nd hand, not tested for £20 and it works perfectly and in perfect condition too. The write speeds is only about 67mb/s and holds 400gb on 1 cassette because its years behind the latest LTO drives as there onto LTO9 now I think, mines LTO3, but its perfect what I want it for. Ive backed up about 5tb so far onto cassettes and Im on my twelve cassette and its saved my skin a few years ago when a virus corrupted my media drive.
