backup strategies
Apr 14, 2013

This may not quite belong in this forum, but I don't see another better place to get a range of well-informed answers.

What strategies, technologies, and software do people use to backup their photographs?

My particular situation is this: I have moved all of my photographs from multiple sources onto an external Western Digital 2 TB usb drive. I have located my Lightroom catalog onto this drive also. One of my purposes in doing this is to permit me to edit photographs on multiple computers by connecting the 2 TB external drive to whatever computer I am using.

What would be the best current ways to back up, more or less continuously, this 2 TB external usb drive? Remember that the drive will be connected to 2 or 3 different computers for editing and for importing pictures from sd and cf cards that will change the files on the drive and the Lightoom catalog.

Thanks for the help!
