Back up your photos for peace of mind

There’s an ugly thought that lurks in the back of your mind when your back-up plan is based on crossing your fingers. What if something happens and my photos are GONE?!! Hard drives crash, laptops get stolen, cloud storage site goes under. It can (& does) happen – far too often. That’s why you need to back up your photos in at least 3 places.

If they’re digital, print them.

If they’re print, scan them.

Then keep at least one backup somewhere besides your own home. I keep a flash drive at my parents’ place. And another copy in the cloud.

If your photos are backed up, that doesn’t mean bad things won’t happen. But you can rest easy knowing that your special photos are protected.

What is your favorite trick for making regular back-ups of your photos quick and easy?
