Just had a scare. A 7 year old HD of mine wouldn't power up.

Took it to the computer repair shop and luckily the drive is fine. Just need to buy a new enclosure for it.

So that is the kick in the butt I needed to get back on the regular backup regimen. It's one of those things you know you're supposed to do, but a lot of people probably are lazy about it until it's too late.

Every photo storage medium has its weak points. Digital files have to be backed up. Printed photos fade, take up physical storage space and can't be "backed up" in the same 100% way as digital. All storage mediums are vulnerable to fire (both prints and hard drives). With digital you can back up and place a copy is a different location. That is if you are not lazy about setting up your backup system like me.
