Back-up Pictures

If you know me, you know I'm a little passionate about pictures.  This week would be a good time to back-up your pictures. I try to do this at least quarterly.

Some ideas on how to back up pictures:

  1. Have an external drive that is plugged into your computer that you backup pictures manually or have it set up automatically if it can.
  2. Have an external drive that you manually copy pictures & store in your fireproof safe
  3. Burn your pictures to a DVD or CD twice.  I do DVD because they hold more & supposedly last longer than CDs.  Store one set in your fireproof safe & one set at a friend or family member.  
  4. Store on the "cloud" or online storage.  Here's a review of some of the more popular ones.  I do the first 3 regularly so I don't have much experience with the online storage.
