"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.
