Backing Up While Away From Home?

posted on 3rd of march, 2008

Here's a question for anyone who cares to comment:

How many backups do you keep while you're traveling? And how do you do it? I don't have nearly enough CF cards to hold all my images if I'm on the road for more than a couple days, so I transfer the files to my laptop, then backup those files to a portable hard drive.

I _guess_ this is safe, but, all the same, I'm depending on two hard drives, both of which get plenty of banging around during transit.

Any other strategies? How far do you all go to ensure you have a good backup while you're traveling?

Good ideas all around. I like the thought of burning DVDs. Cheap, reliable, and easy to make multiple copies--and to mail them to yourself for added protection.

You could always burn CDs or DVDs...
