I’ve reminded people before how important it is to back up your data. Personally, I use Clonezilla for whole-disk or whole-partition backups periodically, in addition to my daily data backups. It’s pretty easy to use, and it gives you a lot of options as to how to store your data. For backing up my laptop, I had been using the save to SMB server option, which is sllllooooowwwww over your standard 802.11g network. So to speed things up, I bought a 128GB USB drive, which I would partition with a tiny Clonezilla boot partition, and my data partition for backups (it is temporary storage only, I have several backup locations I use, but backing up to USB and sneakernet is far faster than backing up over wireless by a factor of about ten).
