80 gigs doesn't store what it used to. Now that I'm finally getting around to building a real home network, workflow and backup system, I'm trying to find better backup mechanisms than going to Fry's and getting Maxtor's latest X00 gigabyte firewire drive.
Turning to tape backup, I came across a shareware tool that claims to allow you to use your DV or Digital-8 camcorder to backup 10-16 gigs on a DV tape. I hadn't considered using my camcorder as a digital tape drive, but now I'm gonna check if Dantz makes a driver to let me use my camera as a backup device with Retrospect. Further updates to follow.
If you like it, please share it.
Hi, I'm Kevin Fox.

The Imp is a computer and wi-fi connection smaller and cheaper than a memory card.
We're also hiring.
