We talk a lot in memory keeping about backing up photos and other digital archives in case of hard drive failure, theft or worse. However, we don’t talk much about making sure the backup copies will actually be there when you need them.
Today I’d like to discuss how to keep your backups safe and secure. Whether you backup to DVD, external hardd rive or the cloud, I want to hear how to add a layer of protection to your system.
- Do you DVDs live in cases, sleeves or a binder?
- Are your hard drives in a fire proof box or at your moms?
- Do you double check your cloud storage to verify it is working?
- Do you create new copies periodically?
Please leave a comment below sharing your strategy for backing up and how you protect your investment.
