    Default Photo storage problem

    Hi guys,

    Where do u guys store ur photo?
    My HDD is running out of space, keeping too much photos
    I go for shooting spree at least once a week and i keep all the photo(even the no good ones)
    now my HDD is running out.

    Do u all store photo in another storage or juz inside the PC HDD?
    Hope to hear from all the pros outthere.

    Go and get yourself a one terabyte external hard disk. Should last for a while.

    Don't forget to backup, backup and backup your precious pictures. Hard disk will crash and DVDs will fail to read after a while.

    what else?, there is nothing else in the market that stores pictures besides hard disk. just get the TB ones and forget about the GB ones cause it is more worth it and since you will use the space...

    If your photos are very precious, it's good to use RAID 1 (mirroring or duplex). If either drive fails, the other will continue to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced.

    I keep all decent looking RAW files. I can convert them later if I need them. And process only those which I want to show in my flickr... occasionally, I'll dig them out and check thru again.

    the 1TB harddisk price quite cheap nowadays. compared to the time when i got my 1st 1TB.

    i super kiasu abt storage. i using a 4-Bay Raid NAS (4 * 1TB) to store my files. so i got no worries of losing then even if one of the harddisk crashed. plus i backed up the photos in a spare 500GB ext harddisk.

    two external HDD is the minimum... a 500 gb, 2.5" is only $150 each. 1 tb 3.5" around the same price.

    hahaha you should stop keeping ALL your photos!
    The bad ones you should downsize them just for memory sake, then they wouldn't take up so much space. I certainly wouldn't want them stored as RAW files when I have no need for them in future.
