March 31st is World Backup Day

"World Backup Day" is this Sunday. As a photographer, you cherish your photos - but have you done enough to protect them? While we like to think that our devices and hard drives are reliable, they will eventually fail. When it comes to protecting your images (or other important files), redundancy, distance and discipline are your friend.

  • Redundancy - Make several copies of your most important data.
  • Distance - Always store at least one backup in a different geographic location than your original data. For instance, use an online cloud storage backup service. Else, send a backup portable hard drive to a family member who lives a comfortable distance away from you.
  • Discipline - Backup regularly. Backup often.
