It's a neat idea. My boyfriend "gave" me I: drive on this computer (er...the HD is *way* too partitioned...don't ask). I would be willing to back up others' files up to 20 MB or possibly more, depending, the only caveat being *please* have another backup method, as unfortunately my boyfriend's computer is very prone to crashing (last time we only lost C:). I do have my own Mac but it's short on HD space and is an old Powerbook to boot. :-/ As for my own files--I have 'em in handwriting, printout, backup email, website, and HTML/.doc versions. Call me paranoid, but I feel somewhat safe. :-p YHL
