New toys for the PC

I've decided to get serious about protecting my data stored on the hard drives and while the really important stuff is backup manually onto a memory stick I really don't want to lose another 700gig of stuff again. To combat this I've just bought a WD My Book World Edition II which offers 4Tb in Raid1 format which is more than enough to store my HD movies and certain other material plus being DNLA compliant the PS3 recognises the unit without requiring the PC to be running and it was a lot cheaper than the price on the WD website:)

I'm currently moving data onto the NAS drive both from my older Dlink NAS and the from the internal hard drive and once that's done (not a speedy process) I switch the Dlink to Raid and I should be good to go.

The latest episode of Gatecast has just been posted so have a listen and feedback of any sort is welcome.
