It's personaly stuff mainly (bit o' porn here an there too
) things like photos, videos, music, games, films, work, rare previous editions of software, just anything I download (which is almost everything)
Im going to Suse as I love the amazing graphics effects and it was just a random choice. It offers multiple desktop display which u can spin like a cube to change desktop. (not sure if other versions offer this)
I've never trusted harddrives for any data archiving as they always seem to fail on me and plus I have a lot of data to store - I probably have well over 1Tb of data on disk - collected over about 8 years, but never thought of 2 or more 500Gb HDD, could be onto something there Matty
I started archiving using CD-Rs wayy before DVD-Rs became available, but all of the CD-R's that I first used are still going strong. But I might put them onto DVD to save on physical space.
I always use Datawrite Titanium DVDs and they are kept well out of the light unless I need something off them.
