PostSubject: Please! Back up your photos.   Sat Jan 03, 2009 3:19 pm

I swear we just talked about this and I was encouraging everyone to back up photos. Well...for the most part, mine are backed up. But, I've been using our external hard drive as our main storage device for pictures. Today, it fell on the floor and I can't access it. I haven't backed up the last 3 months or so onto DVDs as I've done with the rest of them. It is a sickening feeling.

When we get back from our trip, we're going to check Geek Squad or another computer place to see if they can recover everything. I don't care how much it will cost (well, sort of)...years and years of pictures and other files are on there. I just hope someone can access them.

So please, make a date TODAY to back up photos to CDs or DVDs.

Well...Jason has called around. It could be anywhere from a $250 "easy" fix up to several thousand dollars. As much as I love my photos and all of the other files I had on there, we don't have thousands to burn. So, we might just have to chalk this one up to experience.

And, I am 99% certain I'll be getting a flickr pro account or some other online storage system for all of my photos. My stomach hurts.

I have an external hard drive (1TB) as well but I have been considering doing some storage at an online site as the next backup! Cause I've had CDs that I can't read now. I haven't done the DVD route but figure it will just be a matter of time before they can't be "read" either??
Anyone do the online route? If so, what company? Any idea on prices? I think Apple has something - maybe that would be a good choice??

Yes, fortunately I do have some of my wedding and honeymoon pics as well as some other random ones at online photo sites. I have some prints and am ordering CDs of the ones I loaded. And, I have the discs of the pictures my friend took at our wedding (we didn't have a professional). But, that's only a fraction of my pictures. Some is better than none, so I'm happy to have the ones I do.

Jason's uncle said it's dead, so he was trying to find a place near him that his co-workers estimated would be around $100-$150. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. In the meantime, I've been uploading everything to flickr and we bought a new EHD. I'm loving having the online storage for both the backup and because I can look at my pics anywhere I have internet.

when you say you bought a "thingy," are you referring to an external hard drive? If so, that is great! But, I still recommend backing up another way (online, DVDs, a second EHD, etc) because mine were on an EHD and now they're gone, probably forever.
