Backup. Everyone seems to stress about this. Lots of people say they’ll get around to it, but wait until it’s too late. Hard drives will fail. Yes, let me repeat, hard drives fail. It’s not a matter of if, more a matter of when. So it’s imperative to not only backup your photos, but to have a solid backup strategy in place. Something that is robust, redundant and automated so you can Set it and Forget it.
This is the non-glamourus part of photography. But it’s essential. It’s like going to the dentist. Nobody likes it but we all need to maintain the health of our files. If you don’t already have a backup strategy, sit down, take the time to map one out. Figure out what drives you need and what software you’re going to run. Sketch it out, set it and forget it. And remember to Save Often and Save A Lot!
