File Backup

How can I be sure that all my files are backed up? Im sending my laptop in for a new motherboard and they said I cant keep my hard drive. How can I make sure that all of my data will be safe? Can I make a hard drive clone on my 30gig ipod?

Get an external drive, and a copy of GHOST. I GHOST my main drive to a slave drive once in a while, then unplug it. When my drive crashes, I won't lose everything including my settings.

Do that then delete all of your pr0n off the HD you are sending back.

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Just realized that I already have 40+ gb on the comp and I havent even had it for that long... does ghost copy the entire hard drive byte for byte so I can just restore it and all of my settings and files will be exactly where they were before?

Yes it does. It makes an exact copy of your HD

They're going to search your HD for naked pics of your gf/wife/SO and other goodies.

Recently a news channel did an undercover report on that. They sent in a computer with jpeg files titled "sexy" or "bikini" or something like that and they checked the time and date that it was accessed. Usually it was accessed while at the shop. One guy claimed he accessed it to "test" the computer after fixing.

Like Spark said, it will make a perfect clone of your drive. You can plug it in and use it as your main drive if you want.

When I worked for a certain big box store on a certain 'squad' we were required to run a basic search to make sure there was no child pornography on the PC. Ended up resulting in more than a few arrests and trials.

IIRC, that's how they caught Gary Glitter.

I hate child porn as much as the next God Fearing American® but isn't that practice tantamount to invasion of privacy and illegal search and siezure?

You would think, but you should read the fine print that you agree to when you leave your computer for service. You basically allow it all with your signature.
