Cool ;) Love me some VAXen and Exabytes (or used to).

USB flash drives are so cheap now, that's the way to go. Just do not 
depend on only one or limited ability to back-track. Have you heard 
about the "cryptolocker" thing? It's both ingenious and despicable. 
Friend's company got it and it chewed up files on their servers, and 
they were syncing to a SINGLE other media, so the messed up files over 
wrote the good versions. Someone should be fired over it; but at least 
it's a good lesson for others in the biz.
