View Full Version : backing up your data on SD card

November 19th, 2010, 06:19 AM
Hello :!: I'm interested in hearing people's opinions on this before I make any decision about how to best store my data.

Now that I see 32GB SD cards cost less than $50USD, I am thinking of backing up some of my data on SD card instead of on the external hard drive. But I am wondering if SD cards are a reliable source of storing one's data. I mean I suppose it cannot get much worse than hard drives in terms of reliability, but I'm just wondering if there are some risks that I might not be aware of. I would think this idea will become more popular as the capacity of these memory cards expands, but does any of you guys have experience with it?

What are your thoughts :?: Thanks in advance ;)
