Just wondering how you store your photos.

Do you keep them in your 'puter or do you use other mediums.

For easy reference and portability, I keep my completed photos in 5 "Corsair Flash Voyager GT Flash Drives". Each one marked with the categories of the photos in it.

For example one is for "coins". Excellent for taking my collection to club meets etc.

Another holds photos of all my house hold items, mandatory for insurance purposes and tracing by Police in case some low lifes help themselves to my belongings.

On my main computer and once a while copy to my external HD. I don't take photos for a living, so if I lose them, no big deal. Give me another reason t go out and take photos! Having said that, I'll back up valuable photo onto a DVD disk also. These are usualy family photos, e.g. birthdays, CNY, X'mas, etc.

How did you stop moisture from forming when you take the photos out?
hahaha! r u serious with your question? hehe

i transfer all my photos first on my PC, put the necessary metadata, keywords, file-renaming, etc using adobe bridge, then make back ups on my HDD.

before i used to make back ups on a dvd but recently i found out that some of the files are corrupted.. dunno y..:angry:

I store 1 set in my lappy, then copy and paste my whole folder to replace the set in my ext HDD.

Should be more than enough. Unless someone wants to invest in a Tape LTO backup system.
