We’ve all been there, and if you haven’t yet, it’s bound to happen sooner or later. I mean having a Hard Drive that suddenly dies for no reason ( my case few years ago ) and as a result we lose our precious work. It might also happen to your cloud storage like Dropbox or icloud, you never know when and why they might just crash on you so keeping all your files there is very risky as well.
I do have 2 external drives for storing my work, and at times I use Dropbox or Google Drive but who knows how long will they be around before something happens, right?
Therefore yesterday I started doing what I haven’t done in a long time – archiving my photos on DISCS. I received the compact CD burner ( which was only 20euros ) that I bought on ebay a week ago, and I already had a pack of CD-R and DVD+RW discs available so I cracked on with it. Find more information on which discs to use and how to burn Cds right here.
The thing with Cds – they will last you forever, of course keeping in mind that you store them in a cool dry place. But I’m sure I will sleep better knowing that all my files – RAW and Processed are safe.
Preserve you work dear friends and thank you for reading.
Till next time,
