The Western Digital My Book Elite has a user customizable display so you can easily see which drive is which. It also displays available space on the drive. This is very useful as I am starting to lose track of which drive is which on my external drive collection.


I bought this to mainly deal with the 7D's 25MB RAW file problem which eats up my 1TB internal drive way too quickly. I have now offloaded the sound libraries and backup tasks to it, while keeping my cloud backup for all media files on (which uses Amazon S3 + is compatible on Windows, Mac and Linux)


For stuff that has constant change, I use my SVN server hosted on and if I need to collaborate with anyone, I drop them to

This is Jungle Disk, a new(ish) backup solution that stores your files on Amazon's S3 network. Once on the S3 network your files are copied multiple times across multiple data centres, minimising the risk of ever losing that data.


Here I'm using their 2.02 Mac version for an initial import of my Documents folder. On the desktop underneath by USB-attached Seagate drive I have the S3 service available as a normal hard drive labeled JungleDisk.


It's inexpensive and reasonably quick and easy.

This is a screenshot of my photo backup list. I am trying to be diligent about backing up my photos both in my house and offsite (in case of fire, theft, etc)


Over the past couple years I have played with most programs and options from my web hosting company to carbonite. (and others). I have finally settled on JungleDisk and S3 from Amazon.


S3 is the storage solution provided by Amazon, JungleDisk is a piece of software used to access S3.


A couple things to note on this:

1. 2000 and 2002 I was slacking on photos, and I apologize.

2. 1081 files from a Kodak DC 290 2MP camera in JPG format is WAY smaller than 1270 files from a 6.4MP Digital SLR shooting in high-res JPGs and RAW. Funny to see the size difference.


See the "Backup Online" video - What is a good off-site storage solution for backing up my files?Getting your data backed up and off site - either by storing a bunch of DVDs in a security deposit box or by using an online storage service - is very important in today's digital world. The last thing you want to have happen is to lost all of your important personal information.Backup solutions have been pretty expensive in the past: they required special SCSI tape drives and dozens or hundreds of tapes to store your data. Thankfully there are more and more services and software that will let you back up over the Internet.JungleDisk backs up to Amazon's S3 service:Store an unlimited amount of data for only 15 cents per gigabyte No monthly subscription fee, no startup fee, no commitment Your data is fully encrypted at all times Data is stored at multiple datacenters around the country for high availability Access files directly from Windows Explorer, Mac OSX Finder, and Linu

This is not a clean-reinstalled system, it's the standard Linpus Linux distribution, all I have done is edit a few configuration files and use the built-in software updater (hidden by default) to download and install additional applications (Except Jungledisk which was a simple extract-and-run jobby)


This was made possible by postings found at aspireoneuser, Tao of Mac and Road to Elysium

Jungledisk (a S3 webdav interface) cleanly integrated into my desktop. Note the icon near the clock, and the selected folder, which lets me use S3 just like if it's a harddrive.

I use Jungledisk to back up my files, and, when I got my new machine, I googled them up to get the latest version of the client. Mozy, however, had purchased an ad placed on the search for them. Very clever.

I'm enjoying my new desktop picture :)

Though it is nice to know my upstream bandwidth isn't capped. Comcast managed to do something that isn't stupid and evil! You have to cheer them for that. It's like the Special Olympics.

At SXSW in Austin, pink gorillas and giant bananas from Jungle Disk were running around the hallways and throwing money around. Real money. We didn't get any, but it looked like they were having fun!

After consolidating my various firewire drives and configuring nightly backup for Kathryn's and my laptop, I have 50% of my 2TB remaining.


Up next: Chronosync for nightly iTunes library sync, and offsite backup of critical documents via JungleDisk and Amazon S3.
