Ohhhhhh, wow.. Thank you very much! Very clever idea.  I would not have 
thought of that.

The fellow at B&H that I spoke to, also recommended LaCie, and 
G-Technology.  I have a G-Technology and a WD from years ago, they are 
still going (so far).

Do you think the SSDs have greater longevity? less moving parts?

I have diskcatalogmaker! bought some while ago. I really has saved time 
in searching files.  Thanks for the reminder. I am so eager to clear out 
the archives, that I'm like a badger digging through them. Thanks for 
the reminder that I should keep up with the catalog as part of the 
archiving!

Thank you very much,
Linda
