One of the most important habits every photographer or filmmaker should develop is a strong backup strategy that guarantees the safety of your files in the event of a hard drive failure or natural disaster. If you have not created yours yet, check out this helpful video tutorial that will show you how to properly ensure the safety of all your files.
Coming to you from Gordon Laing, this great video tutorial will show you how to properly back up your photos and videos. One of the most common mistakes people make is making multiple backups, but keeping all of them in the same physical location. While this will protect you if a hard drive fails, if there is something like a fire or flood, there is a good chance you will lose your data. This is why all good backup strategies advocate so strongly for an offsite backup. If you have decent upload bandwidth, a cloud service can work well. I use Backblaze, and at $6 a month for unlimited storage, it is hard to beat. Whatever you choose, make sure you stay on top of backing up your work. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Laing.
