A friend told me you can zip files and email them to yourself using Hotmail or another public email service, and if you don't open the file, it remains in cyberspace. In case something happens to your computer, you can always log on and extract that zip file to restore. Ideally, if I zipped my FS9 folder, and mailed it to myself I would feel more comfort knowing I could have all of my add-ons restored after reinstalling FS9 in the event of a crash.
Well I zipped a copy of my FS9, turned out to still be over a gig in size, and there is no way I could email the file so huge.
So, does anyone know a reliable way to backup FS9 without using 14 CD-rs. What are the options? How do people back up their entire drives in a reliable way?
