Backup & Archive Woes Again

Since the recent crash of our SAN at work, we’ve been looking into new backup procedures and, in turn, are trying to estimate storage usage for the next 2 years. It’s gotten me to think a lot about personal storage at home. Originally, I thought I’d just add a DVD-RW drive and do monthly archiving and weekly backups. Now I’m thinking of just moving my 80GB drives into a decent stand-alone file server I could build with a DVD-RW backup and archive system. I’ll update this post later with specs and prices I find today. Whatever I decide to do, I need to do it soon because I am all out of space.
