At work I'm using a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.4, running Outlook 2011. Today, I have to ship off this computer to get an upgrade and security update, and they will be wiping out the contents of the hard drive. They've left us very minimal instructions to back up any files we need. For me, the absolute most important thing is having access to all of my old emails and their attachments. So, QUESTION: how do I backup all of my emails in Outlook so that I'll be able to access them on my newly-wiped computer? Where are email files stored on my computer? How can I back up the attachments on the old emails? How do I avert total disaster?

You generate a lot of video/audio/etc. You're a professional, but not a network or tv station, so you don't have millions of dollars to spend on media archiving and backup. What are your digital media backup and storage strategies? [more inside]

Does anyone have any good picture/file archiving software? Specifically, I'm looking for a Windows or linux program that will do the following:
1) Support full and differential or incremental backups of directories (i.e.: just the ones that have changed since the last backup or the first backup).
2) Burn both CDs and DVDs (not using other packet-writing software).
3) Create normally readable, uncompressed discs (not blob files that can only be read by the same program).
4) Preferably, include an html preview of the whole backup set on each disc.
Basically, I think I'm looking for the exact feature set of Archive Creator
, but with incremental backups or "all files created since" features, which it does not seem to do.
