In the meantime, I don't want to be without backup. I'm probably going to get another terabyte drive. No, not another Iomega. I've found several (including a LaCie 2TB for a decent price but might just bite the bullet and get a high-end, recommended-by-the-data-recovery-place G-Technology drive as back up, and deal with iTunes later (probably after Marscon, alas).
Comments? Anyone have better suggestions?
