How many times did your boss tell his customers it would be ready next week after you told him it would take a month. I've seen that too many times. This is just another example of the top wig tailoring the information for his needs.

Not saying that's what happened but I'd be surprised that the scientists would put the end of ice in the north pole so close.

BTW, how did we start talking about the north pole when this article is about the south pole? or am I confused as usual?

I had a similar problem as you and I found what I consider the best solution for home users. There are many options where you can store you data in the cloud for a yearly fee but it does get expensive as you pass the 200GB mark. What I use is Crashplan. Their software allows you to backup to their cloud or to a friends storage. So if you know someone else with the same problem you can have them allocate some space on their machine for you and you do the same for them. The backups are protected so he won't be able to play with your data. This is all at no charge.

I personally use the Enterprise version which allows you to host your own server. I have my reasons for doing this but most users will be happy with the free home version.

Considering how many users on this forum will learn something from this I would say it's not a complete waste of time.

I spent countless hours searching the web. Unfortunately there is no straight answer but I do have one after trying many pieces of software. I'll post this in a different post
