I’m gonna give you a kick in the pants and let you in on a little secret… As a photographer, as a mom, as a scrapbooker, I PANIC at the thought of losing all my photos. Even the bad ones! So I make sure to regularly back up my images. Do you do the same? Monday, March 31st is a great reminder to do just that as it is World Backup Day! Their site says: “DON’T BE AN APRIL FOOL. Be prepared. Back up your files on March 31st.” Pretty good advice : )
There are a ton of options for external hard drives to back up your files, along with paid online options, and even free online options like Dropbox. Personally, I use a couple of external drives for most of my backups, along with iCloud and Dropbox when I need to share files with clients or friends. All of my images live on a Western Digital My Passport for Mac, and I keep copies of my images and my Lightroom catalog on a Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop EHD. This system works great for me! Do you have a system in place? How regularly do you backup? Whatever system works for you, I just passionately recommend and remind you to backup your photos and files!
Have a wonderful weekend! Be sure to “like” and “follow” me on FaceBook here!
