    Well I like to use an external Hard Drive (Firewire or USB 2). If you dont have high volumes of data to backup, CDR is probably the easiest/cheapest. People alwasy suggest CDR, but I do many many GB's at a time so CD won't cut it

    If you have a second drive on your computer, that would be the easist way. External drives are also easy to use. How important are your files to you? This will determine how you want to back up.

    If you have a DVD-R, it will hold more data.
