BACKING UP DIGITAL IMAGES IN 2019

 

Hello!

I don’t know if anyone even reads my blog anymore but anyhoo…

In the process of rebuilding my blog and trying to get all my content back online, I began to go back through my old hard drives.  A few years ago on Australia Day we had an instance where our street received a bushfire warning and we had to evacuate!  One of those moments where you grab your most precious things and hope for the best.

The first thing I grabbed was my external hard drives that I have backed up my digital files on and a plastic box of film negatives and photos.  If I had tried to lug all my photo albums that would have been a nightmare – but in saying that I do not have all my old images scanned.

Some “helpful” person dropped one of my hard drives on the way out the door – eeek!  Thankfully it still works (just) but this week I decided I need a better plan.  I tested another old hard drive and it doesn’t even want to load the stuff I have put on there for safe keeping!!! Not very reliable at all.

So I am uploading my really old back ups to the cloud.  There are MANY options for cloud back up and I won’t go into them all but for now I am using Google Drive and faithful old Flickr (although that keeps getting dearer)

It’s going to take some time to get them all backed up and I probably should go back and scan photos prior to the digital age for extra safe keeping.

Here is an article I found about me when I first started photoblogging back when I still used the name astrogirl 😀

What would you grab if you had to evacuate your home?
