Save Your Images

3 easy steps to backup your work

Save your images with these three easy steps!

On this week’s show, we share our experience with creating a reliable system of backups to save your images from disaster.  Take your first step with this dive into the software, hardware, and logic behind a good backup system.

Step 1: One master file

The first step to protect yourself against data loss is to build a master volume.  Gather of your images on to one master volume. This may seem like putting all of your eggs in one basket, but without bringing order to chaos, your backup strategy will never stand the test of time.

Step 2: Two separate methodologies

Even the best backup strategy can fail so make your backup method redundant as well. We recommend using both incremental backups and cloning of your master file.

Step 3: Three locations

Don’t condemn all of your hard drives to the same fate. Backup hard drives containing copies of your master files should be separated from one another in a way that independently protects them from fire, water, and theft.
