I guess most of us are now using digital cameras.
In the old days, we could always put the negatives somewhere and know that short of a fire or something we will still have our pics.
With digital cameras, I have noticed a few people I have helped out with PC recoverys or whatever have sometimes lost their pics.
What concerns me is most people simply put all of their digital images in the ‘My pictures’ part of ‘My documents’. When the PC or HDD dies, there’s a good chance the images disappear also.
What is the best method to ensure secure images without too much effort?
I generally like to upload my images to a seperate HDD on the PC than the OS and then make a DVD backup of the folder. I have also got a portable HDD which I can dump a copy of the DVD on if I want. Then what I TRY and do is only modify copies of the images from the HDD…but with copies around the place that need to be kept also, it all starts getting out of hand.
I’m using picasa primarily as a location and management tool, and I find it brilliant.
What are some of the method you guys are using to make sure your images don’t get lost?
