Appraisal Data Backup – I Finally Bought An External DVD Burner For Real Estate Appraisal Data Backup

http://www.realestateappraisertips.info/ – I Finally Bought An External DVD Burner For Real Estate Appraisal Data Backup

Today, after doing some reading, I bought an External Memorex CD/DVD Recorder (MRX-530LE) @ Office Depot for $99 plus tax.   Backs up my appraisal files on CDs or DVDs (up to 9.4 Gigs on 1 DVD), plus other files, such as my workfile folders, comp photos backups, etc…   Yes, I have External Harddrive Backups, but that’s “on-site”.   This way, I can burn all I need to do and keep it “off-site”, plus mail or deliver weekly backups to a trusted location.   In the past, I tried Mozy and that didn’t work well for me.   An appraiser friend tried Carbonite, but when his computer went down, it was going to take several days for him to download his appraisal files….and his clients didn’t want to wait several days to get their reports.  

I burned 38 Gigs of appraisal data on 4 DVDs in just a few hours with no problems at all and feel much better about my data backup solution.
