Is Lotus Notes still running? I used to use that.

Some of us still do. Lotus vanished into IBM, but they sold the Notes product set to HCL last year, now has email in a web browser, and the other "databases" also in a browser option.

Was never a lover of Lotus ccMail or Notes (I never liked LotusScript programming language), I have to say I did like and enjoy the Lotus Sametime product.

We used Notes for years and it was handy for knocking up some quick database applications. The problem was everyone was given the ability to create applications which then left a nightmare to get rid of it because nobody knew how the applications worked but of course they were all "critical". We still have one PC that is disconnected from the network running a Notes database about 4 years after we got rid of the servers.

A lot of enterprise size businesses have moved to Microsoft Exchange as they can integrate it into Active Directory with a schema extension.

The few 4K documentaries and videos that I've watched have shown no signs of going from 4K to HD.

Those are my facts.

As an example of the circumstances where you might lose the laptop and all of your archived material. If you would prefer we can talk about a catastrophic failure of the hard disk on the laptop instead if it will help you to think about your original question rather than going off at a tangent.

No one is going off at a tangent. This forum is fluid and if someone mentions something else then the discussion can change.

How much to store 600GB of data.

Not much on a few hard drives. Raid use makes it easy on multiple machines.

Not many houses are destroyed due to fire, explosion, etc.

My first post was about adequate bandwidth to do what I want to do.

In which case your post (the complete text of which is "Why backup to the cloud when you can backup to a laptop?") perhaps needs a bit of amplification so those of us without second sight can follow your train of thought.

Also interested about how "backup to a laptop" has morphed to "Not much on a few hard drives. Raid use makes it easy on multiple machines." Again second sight needed to fathom your original post.

Good grief. I backup from and to many machines.

My first post was before the one you quote.

Engage brain and read.
