External Firewire drives are too expensive?   I would ask these people
how much their data is worth to them.  I understand about being
on a budget but there are limits.

I'm not trying to flame anyone but you sometimes you have to spend
a little bit of money.

IMHO most of the time Firewire drives cost too much.  If you shop
around you can get an enclosure and a drive and put the drive in
