My Computer Broke And I Lost My Photos


posted on 21st of august, 2007

>Losing your photos can be the worst problem that can happen to a photographer. Your photo agency may have a big system crash and not be able to retrieve your photos, then what do you do!

After a shoot dump all your photos in a directory (I call it Photos to process) and then when you’re done Photoshopping the good ones, put them into a sub directory (I call it Uploads this month). Once approved you can add the files to a final directory (I call that one Dreamstime). Burn everything on a DVD, then as future photos get approved just add them to the final directory and add them to the DVD
.
To safe guard your photos (as well as everything else) from being lost forever whether it’s your fault or not, you need to backup your computer at least once a month to an external harddrive.

Now you have 3 copies of your Dreamstime photos:
1 Computer
2 External Backup Drive USB
3 DVD

I also know this horrible moments. Two years ago it happened........ I still have the sound of the crashing harddisk in my ears........ now I have a Raid-System in my PC, this means two equal harddisks and every wrting or reading is done simultan on both harddisks. And additionaly I burn the files every saturday on a DVD. I never want to have such a horrible experience again.
