My less than 6 month old 2T back up drive has decided it's corrupt, so I also have a snafu on my hands. Fortunately, it looks like all my data (1.3 T of pics!) is recoverable. Whew! But, I'll have to be more careful from here on out and back up my back ups regularly. Since my RAW files are so big, I generally bypass my computer's hard drive and upload straight to my main external hard drive through Lightroom. Then my computer's hard drive (and any current edited photos) gets backed up weekly onto a Time Machine Capsule. At the end of each month I drop my file of edited photos onto my main hard drive to archive them.
I have another external hard drive that's smaller, but to be honest, I haven't been using it to back up my main external hard drive. I've considered on online service, but haven't been diligent about getting anything set up. Big mistake.
So tell me. What's your back up plan? Do you have a system that's easy to set up and use?
On that note, I haven't spent as much time shooting or editing as I would like. I have gone through most of my pics from the 3 month old shoot I did on Tuesday, however, so today I'm sharing a favorite from that shoot. Love, love, love soft squishy babies ;)
Linking up with Kim and Lisa today.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super Labor Day weekend!
