I don’t backup my files up.
Confession No. 2:
This is not because I don’t know any better. Quite the contrary. I have had THREE epic crashes that resulted in tons of lost data and later a HUGE bill to recover parts of it.
Confession No. 3:
I am TERRIFIED of losing my photos and blog. Anytime The Big Mac (my computer) starts to drag my heart jumps into my throat thinking that the blue screen of death is one click away.
So my question to you all – do you backup your blog, photos and documents? If so, what do you use? How do you feel about “The Cloud.” I love the idea of being able to access my documents from any computer or device and am leaning towards some sort of cloud backup system but want it to be an automatic process. I am lazy and forgetful and if the little internet robots don’t do it for me it might never get done. Suggestions?
And while I’m here posting boring housekeeping questions… fellow photographers, when you post a photo to your blog, do you watermark it? What is your preferred way to size the image so it looks good on screen but will not print well so folks don’t gank your hard work?
