What is the best/easiest solution for backing up your files?  I haven't really been doing it consistently up to this point.  What exactly is a zip drive?  Is there any other options?  I actually purchased an external hard drive 4 months ago because my hard drive on my computer is full.  I've been editing videos which take up a lot of room so now I save all my photos/videos onto my external drive.  Unfortunately, now it is full too.  I was thinking up using it as a back-up device but there is no room.  Any suggestions?

You could install a new internal hard drive and then transfer the files onto that from your external drive. Leaving the external drive free for back-ups.

You could take a look at a new Maxtor external drive that is good for backing-up.

In simple terms a Zip Drive is the same as a floppy only it can store 100Mb or 250Mb on each disk instead of the standard 1.44Mb. The disks are a bit bigger and the technology is fairly old. It's not really used that much anymore.

You could also back-up using DVDs or CDs.
