      Or are you talking about price per megabyte?

      Who does backups *to* a laptop anyway?
      Good question.

      I used to do support for GP's (General Practitioners), and one very cheap and practical backup process I implemented was to backup the essential databases to some of the GP's laptops so they had access to at least some data at home or the hospital in the event internet access failed. And it was free offsite archiving.

      Considering the data was mostly low-level secrity stuff, no one was fussed to much about simply passworded zip's.

        I lol'd for days.. Who is going to be able to read a pop-up on the laptop while it is free-falling?.. Unless you are also falling with it at the same time...in which case, your laptop's hard-drive is probably the least of your concerns..

          I retrofitted my Dell E7440 with a 1TB drive (WD blue slim, the only thing that would fit), so this would be useful, I don't need to worry about the primary SSD mSATA drive of course.

            Would be annoying for astronauts.

              You know, testing such code must really suck
