Pls advise. thanks
I used to backup to DVDs but lately decided to invest on external HD storage. I appreciate the faster access to my archive and images can be managed and stored in an efficient manner with applications like Aperture of Lightroom. It's obviously a more expensive solution over other recordable media but the tradeoff is worth it, imo.
dvds is cheap
hard disk is ex..more convenient though
I store 3 copies of all my photos. First on the PC harddisk. Second on external HD. Third on DVDs. I am paranoid because I almost lost all my photos last year when the PC crashed
I use an external HDD.. coz it's much more reliable than other methods, and my comp space isn't alot.. I have some of my jpeg photos in my comp and online too.. just in case...
Canon EOS 30D w/ grip 580EX, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, EF-S 10-22mm
I have 2-3 external HD... Get one Desktop type harddisk.. cheap and huge capacity to store everything.. then the notebook kind 2 pcs for portability and backups..
PC HDD and EXT HDD (back up)!
i use the 3.5" hdds as my external hdds. store all my photos inside.
but those important ones i will store a spare copy in dvd just in case either fails..
thats for contingency.
well.. dvd do fail after a period of time if you do not take care of the dvds thou...
Or can burn 2-3 copies of your data on different, but reputable brands of DVD. Cheap and saves on valuable desktop space.
For good quality DVD Media, you may want to check the following site
So far I have used and will strongly recommend Sony DVD+R and DVD-R. Partly also because they are easily available at Popular Bookshop
actually... i suggest is that... get a LANDRIVE... then set up FTP... nowadays singapore going to island wide internet... then get a software recovery tools... at least harddisk crash... the recovery tools does help.. that why I always do..
