What's Best for Backups: External Hard Drives or Remote Backup Service
Jul 11, 2012

Currently I am backing up my photos on an external hard drive in addition to keeping them on my computer. Although I do not know the exact amount of space I am using I estimate it is nearing 100 gigabytes and growing. I am interested in finding out more about using a backup service such as that offered by Smugmug or one of the others. Right now I see the upside of going remote is a seemingly more secure system and not having to worry about drive failures. The down sides may be the recurring cost and needing internet access to recover. I would be interested in hearing anyone's experiences with these services and if anyone feels one approach is better than the other. Thanks.
