We know backing up your images is not nearly as exciting as looking through them but we want to take this opportunity to remind you to please back-up your photos!
Computers fail, hard drives fail. Technology can fail us at the best of times. There is also fire, theft and human error to take into account.
We recommend that your keep at least three copies of your files, on three separate systems. One of those systems should be offsite (not in your home).
Updating the formats on which your files are stored on is also a great idea. Technology is constantly changing and what worked a few years ago is probably on it’s way out and being replaced with something new.
Now, get to it! Don’t procrastinate.
