picasa saves to my computer? or to their own server? 
basically i want to know if my stuff will always be saved even if my computer crashes...
i saved to hard drive, but even that can break...any suggestions!?

Hi ag55,

The Picasa client simply reflects what's already on your computer, and not to our Picasa server. When you upload a photos to Picasa Web Albums, then there's a copy on the Google server.

I definitely suggest that you create a set of photo backups that's on your computer. It's true that hard drives do break, so if you want to be extra safe you may want to use several methods - upload a set of pictures to Picasa Web Albums, store a complete copy on your hard drive, and also create another copy on your computer.
