OK, let me see if I understand. Crash Plan backs up to and ehd-I guess this is how my time machine works....it backs up to my 1st ehd. I have everything on both of my ehds.
Do you find that flickr is a safe site? I would hate my pics to wind up on some weird internet site since I have so many pics of my granddaughter. THANKS so very much for answering my million questions!!

If I'd had two forms of backup when my HD crash occurred, I could have backed everything right back on to my new hard drive from an EHD, skipping the whole business with Mozy.
So, I guess the moral of the story is to have two forms of back-up, on- and off- site. That's so you're covered in most eventualities. Off-site in case your home is burgled, a house fire, etc; on-site in case of a hardware failure.
Crash Plan does have an off-site option; just make sure it can back up your EHDs, too. Back Blaze is another option.
I have a Pro account with Flickr, for unlimited uploads. It's $25 a year.
