oh man! that's no fun!

u should look into getting an external hard drive or maybe a flash drive with enough memory... much easier than DVDs, portable & great for massive backups.

yes, no? did think about it, but then dvds are available at local shop, and I'd have to go looking for the external HD.
On the other hand, one easy-peasy transfer. ok. worth it, I think. Nehru Place it is.

That's happened to me, I kid you not, 3 hours after I e-mailed a 25 page un-backed up term paper to a professor. It's not fun, my sympathies, and do the external hard drive as opposed to DVDs.

Man that's scary! Isn't it a new laptop?! Hard Drive wonly! But be careful, you don't go around re-formatting it. It can go blank (I did that to a friend's collection of 4000 songs once).
And the Facebook status syndrome has gotten you baaad no? :D
