It’s VERY important to back up your files and music in case your hard drive crashes. I know a few bloggers whose Macs have crashed, and only a couple were able to restore from their flash drive or external hard drive!
Anyways, you can pick up a great deal on a flash drive on Amazon.com! Get the HP v125w 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive for just $20.52. Shipping is $2.50, so you’ll pay just $23.02 shipped! I haven’t seen such a good deal on this size flash drive for quite a while.
In addition to having an external storage device, you can sign up for some online storage services. I have Dropbox installed on my computers, and I love the fact that I can access my files when I’m at school! Accounts start out with 2GB of storage space, and you can earn more free space by referring your friends.
