For those interested in what I am currently doing :)
Each laptop has two dedicated usb external platter-driven pancake-sized hard-drive. The laptop staying at home has its two HDs locked in the small home safe.
The laptop that travels with me from school to school: -- one HD was locked in a small home safe -- the other HD was in my rolling briefcase Presently, both HDs are now locked in the home safe, they only come out during backup or restore operations. No more lingering, the backups or restores are done quickly and efficiently - then returned to the safe.
Now, also, the traveling laptop has two designated 12GB flash drives for "sneaker-netting" folders and files between the two laptops. -- one FD stays in the desk drawer (that might change to being stored in the small safe) -- the other FD travels in my back pocket. What has changed is that I plug in the FD, quickly get done what I need to get done, no more leave-it-in-all-classtime, and it gets put into a "car key pouch". I know where that pouch is at all times, whether in the house or at school in my back pocket.
The quite small safe holds very little, some paper originals and the backup HDs.
"Take care of thy backups and thy restores shall take care of thee." Ben Franklin revisited
Cindy: Not all the blood of beasts on Jewish altars slain; Could give the guilty conscience peace, or wash away the stain. But Christ, the heav’nly Lamb, takes all our sins away; A sacrifice of nobler name and richer blood than they.—Isaac Watts

Cindy: I am a servant of the God of heaven; my business is to persuade sinners to repentance. I am commanded to do my endeavors to turn men, women, and children, from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God. The pilgrim's progress
