How do you protect and manage the thousands of photographs that you have stored on your computer. Do you back them up? Do you have backups of the backups? Are you using the cloud to store your photographs and digital files off-site?
In this video I walk you through the process that I would suggest you use to backup your photographs. I work with a company called Backblaze who offers unlimited cloud storage for just $5.00 per month. I have found Backblaze to be much better than cloud storage and backup companies like Crashplan and Carbonite.
I will also explain the backup software that I use to automatically create my backups. I prefer Carbon Copy Cloner, but GoodSync is also an option.
The bottom line is that you need to backup your digital photo files. It’s not as hard or as expensive as you thought – so don’t get caught without a backup for your backup. In the big picture of money spent on photography gear and software, backing up your precious photographs is a very small expense yet potentially the most important thing you will spend money on.
